Holistic and integrated emergency management

In this joint proposal, we intend to develop a holistic and integrated EM system that is able to take into account pre-hospital screening, hospital selection, EV optimal routing, intelligent infrastructure adaptation, traffic flow control and congestion management, V2X communication, and system integration.

Emergency management (EM), which is strategic to approach the vision of zero death, needs efficient cooperation among multiple stakeholders including medical services, public safety answering point (PSAP, or SOS), police departments, infrastructure planners, and traffic operators. The current disaggregated practice of EM in both China and Sweden is in high need of improvement. In this joint proposal, we intend to develop a holistic and integrated EM system that is able to take into account pre-hospital screening, hospital selection, EV optimal routing, intelligent infrastructure adaptation, traffic flow control and congestion management, V2X communication, and system integration. This project is in collaboration with a Chinese team led by Changjiang Chair Professor Wei Wang, who is the most influential transport engineering researcher in China with over 30 years experiences in EM. The Swedish team includes four research institutions (Chalmers: traffic flow control; RISE: system integration; Uppsala: optimal routing; and VTI: traffic safety and EM), and four industry partners (Medfield diagnostics AB: to develop the equipment of pre-hospital fast evaluation; H&E Solutions: to develop in-vehicle equipment for V2X communication; WSP AB: intelligent infrastructure and service provider; FellowBot AB: EV location planning). The market and social potentials of this proposed research are immense. By improving the current practice of emergency management, thousands of lives can be saved and ultimate goal of zero death becomes more realistic. The developed technologies and equipment can also be used by other areas related to emergency management such as evacuation and disaster response.
