ESCAPE - An Adaptive Framework for Managing and Providing Context Information in Emergency Situations
Source: Springer Science+Business Media
Supporting adaptive processes in tackling emergency situations, such as disasters, is a key issue for any emergency management system. In such situations, various teams are deployed in many sites, at the front-end or back-end of the situations, to conduct tasks handling the emergency. Context information is of paramount importance in assisting the adaptation of these tasks. However, there is a lack of middleware supporting the management of context information in emergency situations. This paper presents a novel framework that manages and provides various types of context information required for adapting processes in emergency management systems.
