Recent developments in robotics and the associated fields of computer vision and sensors pave the floor for automated robotic solutions, exploitable in the wider field of inspection of civil infrastructures and particularly transportation tunnels, the latter ageing urgently requiring inspection and assessment. Currently, tunnel inspections are performed via(More)
Evacuation is a complex process influenced by multiple parameters that have significant impact on the design and execution of an efficient Active Evacuation Route (AER). Computer vision algorithms are critical for an effective AER, since it indicates the current situation awareness of the environment. Thermal imaging is an alternative effective computer(More)
