INOV a leading private non-profit R&D organization in Portugal. INOV’s main purpose is the participation in technological development and innovation processes in close cooperation with governments, enterprises and universities. INOV has accumulated strong technical expertise in various area like Artificial Intelligence, Cybersecurity, Access Networks, Mobile Communication Systems, Sensor Networks, Network Architectures and Protocols, Speech Technologies and Systems, Remote Monitoring and Surveillance Systems, Security and Defence Systems, Control and Electronics Development. INOV has consolidated knowledge and proven installed solutions for security, monitoring and surveillance, with clients and partners in Portugal, EUA, Angola, Turkey, Brazil, Greece, Italy, among other countries. INOV has extensive experience in large National and European R&D projects (FP6, FP7, H2020) with over 70 participations in the last 10 years
Role in the project
INOV will lead and work in the Infrared and thermal image processing for the detection of man-made, disasters, First Responder tactical team DSS connected to wearable sensors system. Also it collaborates and contributes in other activities with his technical expertises like user requirements and design the use cases as well as to the activities of pilot implementation, testing and evaluation communications and dissemination.
Infrared and thermal image processing techniques
The result will be a a multimodal automated surveillance (MMAS) system. The system is based on a network of near-infrared (NIR) and thermal sensors that support the automated monitoring server. The goal is to make the work of the operator more efficient and effective. Alerts should be generated whenever the system detects that an object has a suspicious behaviour, detected using a rule-based system.
Tactical Decision Support System
A TDSS (tactical decision support system) is system that in the field will help the team to take more efficient decisions and be more aware. It will be developed the TDSS using wearables for the team members using common-off-the-shelf (COTS) components as much as possible and a dedicated terminal to connect the sensors with local IoT communications.
