What will be your role?

An explosion in an industry area (e.g., Rotterdam harbor) can cause injured humans, destructed buildings and infrastructure, chaos, and -possibly toxic- air pollution. Information about the dynamic situation is dynamic, incomplete, and sometimes uncertain, affecting task planning and performance continuously. Advancing the momentary situation awareness of fire fighter team members will improve safety and performance. In the ASSISTANCE project, the goal is to help fire fighters by developing a platform where data from various sources (e.g. unmanned platforms, wearable sensors) will be integrated in order to inform FRs on potential hazardous situations. The system prototype will be evaluated in three different evaluations with fire fighters.

Topics are, depending on your background and interest:
  • How can the interaction between humans (e.g., the fire fighters) and unmanned systems (e.g., robots, drones) be improved? For example, how can procedures be formalized or/and working agreements be specified that support norm-based behavior, addressing contextual factors (agreements are adjustable within specific constraints)?
  • How can trust and understanding of first responders be supported by explaining options and/or decisions?

How do you want to contribute to tomorrow's world? How big can your impact be? Come and work at TNO and envision it.
