The main goal of the Safemap project is designing and realizing an electronic piloting system for gas sensors to be used for environmental monitoring.
SAFEMAP: Automatic Sensory System for Phenomena and Events Monitoring and Mapping in case of Natural Disasters and Environmental Risks. It is a PAR/FAS project funded by Regione Liguria, included in the 2007-2013 call and involving several partners:
UNIGE COSMIC lab, Telerobot S.p.A., Aitek S.p.A. and FOS s.r.l.
The project stems from the need, by agencies such as civil defence and fire services, of a system that can be easily moved around the affected area and able to manage a complex system of unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) to collect information from the field and make it readily available to operators.
