Project Introduction

Natural disasters occur frequently around the world. Internet of Things (IoT) sensors can detect such cataclysmic events, but these data are often analysed in the cloud. This project aims to develop a context aware disaster mitigation system (CAMS) that utilizes mobile edge computing (MEC) and a wireless mesh network powered by NerveNet. Armed with MEC, each IoT node executes AI detection tasks locally and submits metadata comprising the disaster content to a gateway. The gateway eliminates disaster content redundancy by performing cluster traffic scheduling based on disaster activity level. Such critical information is stored in the NerveNet distributed database. Using wireless mesh networking, data can be disseminated to emergency response units (ERU) for rescue planning.
