Prototype of a system to determine evacuation routes: A case in the USTA Tunja

Abstract

The electronic and computational development has helped to create many new applications where the principal idea is obtaining better results in case of an emergency. Over time, we have investigated about new processes and strategies to analyze data, and how to use by audiovisual media to teach people to respond to emergency response, or any natural disaster as a seism. Using systems based on analysis and processing of images and the new mobile applications, we can create a new tool used in case of emergency. This new application will give us the instructions to evacuate safety, taking care of everyone's physical integrity. We have developed this project to find and implement solutions to the problems that can be faced in an emergency or a natural disaster, because in those cases we need to evacuate a zone. This new application will give faster and safer ways of getting out of the dangerous places getting images from them and sending the information to the person in danger. Also, this application will be able to alert the people closer to an emergency exit letting them know the actual situation of it. It will allow the people to move through different exit routs in case of collapse, or any impediment that might be blocking an exit. Thus, the evacuation will be safer and will get better results, saving more people's lives.
