|Title:||On combining the Internet of Things with crowdsourcing in managing emergency situations||Authors:||Lambrinos, Lambros||Keywords:||Crowdsourcing;Emergency situation;Internet of Things;Mobile application;Sensor networks||Category:||Electrical Engineering - Electronic Engineering - Information Engineering||Field:||Engineering and Technology||Issue Date:||9-Sep-2015||Publisher:||Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc.||Source:||IEEE International Conference on Communications, ICC 2015; London; United Kingdom; 8 June 2015 through 12 June 2015||DOI:||10.1109/ICC.2015.7248387||Abstract:||During emergency situations, collecting accurate information and in a timely manner is becoming more of the essence especially when lives are in danger. Crowdsourcing is an established method that relies on people to provide information on their surroundings or ongoing incidents something which in many cases is achieved through mobile applications. The Internet of Things on the other hand, relies on sensors and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications to acquire data which is then analysed centrally. Combining the two in a common platform is the subject of this paper: we aim to collectively utilize the accuracy of the data gathered by the Internet of Things with the more contextual information provided by people in order to enhance existing mechanisms for detecting and subsequently managing emergency situations.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/9359||ISBN:||978-146736432-4||Rights:||© 2015 IEEE.||Type:||Conference Papers|
