The AIDER project aims at the development of an efficient system, ableto optimize the efficiency of Rescue Operations in situations of Accidents on the Road.
The AIDER Concept is based on the idea of a direct co-operation between an On-board System for Automatic Incident Detection, to be installed in vehicles, and Control Centers, dispatching the emergency calls to the “Rescue Services”. During- and after-accident full information on personal injuries, vehicle status, involved parties and accident area location are automatically provided to the Control Center.
This should lead to an effective reduction of the time of intervention and optimisation of the rescue procedures, so it can be possible to consequently reduce mortality in road accidents.
Simulation of accident scenarios.
When the accident is simulated, information are sent to the Control Center, regarding physical parameters of the occupants, vehicle status,
Two Operation modes: - Automatic Call
- Manual Call
Test of Resistance of stand-alone Black Box: resistance to crashes with manteinance of transmitting functionalities
Test of correct receiving of data in the Control Center, both Medical Control Center and Road Management Center
In Europe, road accidents cause about 42000 deaths and 1.5 millions injured people, every year.
AIDER, trying to optimise rescue procedures and operations with also the reduction of the time of response, will provide valuable contribution to the EU policy, in particular way addressing the reduction ofcosts in rescue operation, and also contributing to the very important social and ethical aim of reduction of deaths in road accidents.
Control Centerfor Road Management, Control Centerfor Rescue Management, Insurance companies, Police, and others will be contacted to better identify which are the valuable information of the accident, regarding the vehicle, the occupants and the surrounding area status.
Sensors for Biophysical information and valuable vehicle information will be defined. Requirements or protecting this data (Black Box protection) will be also defined.
At Control Center level, the Accident severity will be in this way reconstructed, using a wide Accidentologic Database, in order to foresee the crash severity and therefore optimize rescue management operations.
AIDER short term benefits:
improvement of actualrescue operationsand managementand provision of valuable information regarding accident severity.
AIDER long term benefits:
Possible introduction to the market of AIDER systems. The AIDER Black Box may be, in the future, widely used for helping in accident situations and for accident reconstruction (useful for Police and Insurance companies).
