The second project review of the RAWFIE project (Road-, Air- and Water- based Future Internet Experimentation) has been successfully held on October the 18th, 2017 in Brussels, at EC premises.
During the review, the project members presented the results of the second project period, focused on the development of the second and third version of the platform prototype, including the integration of new Testbeds and UxV (Unmanned Vehicles).



The eCall development is moving forward: a demonstration event about TPSPs (Third Party Service Providers) and PSAPs (Public Safety Answering Point) eCall data exchange was held on November the 7h, 2017 in Varese, Italy, at the CUR 112 (Centrale Unica di Risposta 112 – a PSAP). eCall is the service that allows the sending of a message from a vehicle to emergency services in case of need.



Some events may work as a natural alarm of a tsunami: to know these signals may save your life and that of people near you. On 26 December 2004, Tilly Smith, a 10 yo English girl, was on holiday at Maikhao Beach (Thailand). A few days before departing, her geography teacher had a lesson on tsunamis, their behaviour and their characteristics. When Tilly saw the water receding from the shoreline and frothing bubbles on the surface of the sea, she alerted her parents, which informed other perople and the hotel staff. The shore was evacuated before the tide arrived at the beach, and Maikhao was one of the few beaches where no death was registered.



The Workshop was hosted by the Italian National Fire Corps and co-sponsored by the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM), the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the OASIS standards organization, and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). There were 72 experts from 20 countries.

CAP Implementation Workshop 2017

The 2017 edition of the CAP Implementation Workshop was held in Rome last 20 and 21 September. The Workshop offered the opportunity to share information, ideas and trends about data exchange, CAP use and public alerting. The speakers presented some uses cases of the current use of CAP by organisations from Countries all over the world, such as Philippines, Germany, Zimbabwe and China. One of the speaker was Massimo Cristaldi, technical director of IES Solutions, which showed the use of CAP for alerting citizens through radio channels. The system, called JIXEL-RADIO and developed by IES Solutions, allows the organisation to send a message that will be automatically broadcasted by radio station as a voice message (read by a text-to-speech engine). JIXEL-RADIO is currently used by the Regional Department of the Sicilian Civil Protection.
