  • Using Social Media Data to Enhance Disaster Response and Community Service

    Social media usually contains real-time and vital disaster information hidden in the abundance of user-generated text messages, news, pictures or videos. Social media data has been used for disaster response, especially for major disasters such as Earth quake, Hurricane, Flood, etc. How to collect, filter, extract and manage the data and information of social media to help disaster mitigation becomes more and more critical. Many disaster response systems have been used in disaster mitigation, but most of them focused on broadcasting alert messages rather than collecting crowd-sourcing disaster information. In addition, these mechanisms didn't consider how to utilize the social network for disaster response. In this paper, we proposed the strategy for disaster information collecting, managing, extracting and classifying from social media for disaster response and community service. And we developed a social media based disaster information system and application for nature disasters. And typhoon was selected as case study to evaluate the system.

  • A study on the disaster response scenarios using robot technology

    There are lots of dangerous situations in disaster like fire, toxic gas accident and so on. In these circumstances, it is hard to cope with disaster only by human activities. Therefore, robot is the only means that can be used in disaster environment where humans cannot cope with. In order to use the robot in disaster situation, the most important thing is to develop a robot utilization scenario. In this paper, we address new scenario using robots in difficult disaster to deal with only by human power.

  • A Cloud Computing Application for Synchronized Disaster Response Operations

    During disaster response, key resources are supplied from a variety of channels including: government agencies, volunteer organizations, commercial businesses, educational institutions and others. While these entities have efficient internal methods of communication and coordination, interorganizational collaboration has often been hindered by political, social, and technological challenges. This paper examines the challenges to collaboration among responding entities and proposes a technology-enabled self-synchronization framework for sharing information using a distributed, highly scalable, web application based on the cloud computing technologies. The proposed design applies the unique benefits of cloud computing to the disaster response domain. This notional design facilitates communication among a broad range of public and private groups without requiring these organizations to compromise competitive advantage.

  • A Real-Time Decision Support Tool for Disaster Response: A Mathematical Programming Approach

    Disasters are sudden and calamitous events that can cause severe and pervasive negative impacts on society and huge human losses. Governments and humanitarian organizations have been putting tremendous efforts to avoid and reduce the negative consequences due to disasters. In recent years, information technology and big data have played an important role in disaster management. While there has been much work on disaster information extraction and dissemination, real-time optimization for decision support for disaster response is rarely addressed in big data research. In this paper, we propose a mathematical programming approach, with real-time disaster-related information, to optimize the post-disaster decisions for emergency supplies delivery. This decision support tool can provide rapid and effective solutions, which are essential for disaster response.

  • A Methodology of Requirement Analysis for Disaster Response Oriented Spatial Information

    Spatial information has been very influential to environment manager. Especially to disaster response, spatial information are more influential cause the pressure of space, time, and resources. In the past the research on spatial information system mostly focused on the technical field or limited on one specific function of the entire disaster management activity. More attention is needed to pay to the whole system of disaster management since it involves with more organizations, more accountabilities and more shared resources. This study put forward an analysis method to disaster response oriented spatial information requirement basing on project management principle.

  • TRIAGE: Applying context to improve timely delivery of critical data in mobile ad hoc networks for disaster response

    In disaster response, critical data needs to be delivered quickly so responders can address high priority issues as soon as they occur. Mobile ad hoc networks are fundamental in these efforts as the existing telecommunications infrastructure is often rendered inaccessible in large- scale disasters. Due to the inherent low bandwidth in mobile ad hoc networks, an explosion of data may cause congestion. We present TRIAGE, a framework that leverages sender context information to ensure the timely delivery of critical data.

  • Employing modeling and simulation for disaster response scenario analysis

    Many important disaster response scenarios are infeasible to test because they are too disruptive, expensive, or dangerous to actually run. This creates a question: How to plan for potential disasters in the absence of empirical and actuarial data? Modelling and Simulation (M&S) provides a way to structure, quantify, and analyse potential disaster scenarios and their responses. Specifically, M&S can be used to examine the complex interactions among populations, infrastructures, and policies. This paper demonstrates these analytic benefits using an epidemic simulation that synthesizes disparate analytic elements and areas of expertise, explores the dynamic consequences of complex system relationships, and allows for rapid modification and retesting of scenarios. In this example, a pathogen with a quantified infection rate, incubation time, and lethality is released into a human population. The model shows the timing of the epidemic, the load it places on the health infrastructure, and the consequences of ameliorative policies.

  • Design and development of a crowdsourcing mobile app for disaster response

    The explosion of web-based GIS technologies and the opening up of mapping services to citizens in the past decade have resulted in a whole range of Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) communities like OpenStreetMap, Ushahidi, and Wikimapia, which are used to assist emergency management operations on a large scale. However, many crowdsourcing systems for disaster recovery have multiple obstacles like accessibility, ease of use, dependency on social media and requirement of special skill sets on the part of the public participants that serve as limitations to the fulfillment of the democratization potential of VGI. In this paper, we design and develop a crowdsourcing mobile app for disaster response based on several requirements: user friendliness, user anonymity, real-time updating and viewing of geographic information, bi-directional communication between users and emergency responders, simple interface design, and easy download. Mobile apps like this are very useful for creating and disseminating quality and timely geographic information during emergencies.

  • Flooded streets — A crowdsourced sensing system for disaster response: A case study

    This study is about the disastrous flooding of an Indian metropolitan area of Chennai when the rain had nearly broken the record of 100-years with 374 mm rain falling on December 1, 2015, virtually breaking the November monthly average of 407.4 mm in a day. This city with a population of approximately 6.7 million people came to a standstill. Astonishingly, one of the biggest software development hubs in India was struggling for data and tools to identify which parts of the city were most affected and vulnerable to such climate phenomena. A group of software engineers quickly came up with an idea of using a Flood Map tool managed through crowdsourcing to help the citizens of Chennai and prevent further casualties. They developed a map-based tool called Flooded Streets to report flooded streets using OpenStreetMap (OSM) data. Using this Flood Map tool, anyone in the crowd could click on a street if they knew it was flooded and update the map information. Within the following 24 hours, over 2,500 streets had been reported as flooded by the citizens of Chennai using the Flood Map tool. An ordinary citizen could zoom into a locality, visualize which streets are reported as flooded and decide their next course of action. This map was also a great aid tool for relief and aid workers to track the flooded paths and provide appropriate aids in that area. The map consists of a base layer of low-lying areas created using elevation models from ISRO and NASA, and flooded areas from UNITAR. The map interactivity was built using Mapbox GL and hosted on GitHub. This crowdsourced sensing system is an extraordinary example of disaster response using the crowdsourcing concept, which potentially helped millions of people with the minimum time and resources but with great crowd contributions from both experts and non-experts.

  • Kinematic analysis of hydraulic manipulators for a disaster response robot

    This paper introduces an armored robot system with dual hydraulic manipulators for disaster response. To handle heavy things for an armored robot, dual hydraulic manipulators are suggested. For kinematic analysis of this mechanism, we set up the D-H parameters. To obtain the positions and orientations of the end-effector, forward kinematics is performed, and to control the end-effector, inverse kinematics is performed. Through simulations, the feasibility of the mechanism is demonstrated.
