Personalized Alert Notifications and Evacuation Routes in Indoor Environments
Ignacio Aedo,Shuxin Yu,Paloma Díaz,Pablo Acu?a,Teresa Onorati
Sensors , 2012, DOI: 10.3390/s120607804
Abstract: The preparedness phase is crucial in the emergency management process for reaching an adequate level of readiness to react to potential threats and hazards. During this phase, emergency plans are developed to establish, among other procedures, evacuation and emergency escape routes. Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) can support and improve these procedures providing appropriate, updated and accessible information to all people in the affected zone. Current emergency management and evacuation systems do not adapt information to the context and the profile of each person, so messages received in the emergency might be useless. In this paper, we propose a set of criteria that ICT-based systems could achieve in order to avoid this problem adapting emergency alerts and evacuation routes to different situations and people. Moreover, in order to prove the applicability of such criteria, we define a mechanism that can be used as a complement of traditional evacuation systems to provide personalized alerts and evacuation routes to all kinds of people during emergency situations in working places. This mechanism is composed by three main components: CAP-ONES for notifying emergency alerts, NERES for defining emergency plans and generating personalized evacuation routes, and iNeres as the interface to receive and visualize these routes on smartphones. The usability and understandability of proposed interface has been assessed through a user study performed in a fire simulation in an indoor environment. This evaluation demonstrated that users considered iNeres easy to understand, to learn and to use, and they also found very innovative the idea to use smartphones as a support for escaping instead of static signals on walls and doors.

Sri Lanka Journal of Critical Care , 2009,
Abstract: The safety of critically ill patients in intensive care units is an important aspect of medical care. Many human factors contribute to deficiencies and errors in patient care in the intensive care setting, such as long working hours, high levels of stress, lack of enough people, may cause human errors and affecting the effectiveness of the decisions of the physician. Several attempts have been made to increase the effectiveness of such decisions by issuing early alerts on adverse patient conditions. However, such alerts are based on single parameter variations, and not on the relationship between multiple parameter variations. We developed a computer-based model is an integrated solution which identifies adverse patient events based on multiple parameter variations, and then provides predictive treatment suggestions based on the likely clinical conditions which result in the parameter variations. The proposed system follows an interactive communication cycle in order to properly notify the responsible treating physicians at different tiers of responsibility. Our model is capable of early identification of adverse conditions and providing suitable treatment suggestions, thus acting as a decision support system to assist the treating physician.

Abstract: this study analyzed the reliability of the final diagnosis in the 155,242 dengue reports during the 2001-2002 epidemic in the city of rio de janeiro, brazil, using the official information system on communicable diseases (sinan). the system allows the following options for the final diagnosis: classic dengue, dengue hemorrhagic fever, discarded, inconclusive, and unknown. we built a classification routine in epi info to compare the final diagnosis from sinan with ministry of health criteria. according to the final diagnosis, the case breakdown was: 52.4% classic dengue; 0.6% dengue hemorrhagic fever; 0.9% discarded; 46% inconclusive and unknown. the revised diagnosis showed that 78% of classic dengue, 69% of dengue hemorrhagic fever, and 21.1% of discarded cases met the classification criteria. although the reliability of the sinan final diagnosis was generally satisfactory (kappa = 0.681; 95%ci: 0.685-0.677), it was worse for fatal cases (kappa = 0.152; 95%ci: 0.046-0.258). considering the epidemic's magnitude, the final diagnosis of classic dengue and dengue hemorrhagic fever was satisfactory, but the high proportion of inconclusive or unknown cases and the poor quality of information for fatal cases limit the usefulness of sinan in this context.

Jameela Al-Jaroodi,Nader Mohamed
Journal of Software , 2009, DOI: 10.4304/jsw.4.8.875-882
Abstract: Stock investors all agree that one of the hardest things they have to do is keep up with the rapid changes in the markets. The Internet carries a huge amount of up-to-the minute information for investors such as current stock prices, exchange rates, sales volumes, latest deals, trading averages, organizations’ performance and financial information, oil and other goods prices, and much more. Although such stock-related information is publicly and freely available on the Internet, investors face difficulties tracking the changes and updates fast enough to make sound investment decisions. This paper proposes a system to monitor stock and other stock-related information available from web services or dynamic HTML documents on the Internet. This system can deal with public information available on the Internet on a single or multiple websites and from a single or multiple web services as the information sources. The system allows investors to use these sources to create personalized stock monitoring criteria and then receive updated notifications from the system based on the specified criteria. The public information is treated as a set of Internet variables used to define stock monitoring criteria based on the specific investor’s requirements. Based on the defined criteria, SMS and/or email notification messages can be generated and sent to the investor notifying him/her whenever the criteria are met. A number of applications related to stock investments can benefit form this system to provide real-time useful information to the investors.
