INTREPID is a 3-year-long EU-funded project that aims to help first responders deal with the challenges they face when they arrive at the scene of a hazardous incident, providing a platform that will improve the 3D exploration and analysis of disaster areas.
INTREPID aims to create a unique platform, seamlessly integrating Intelligence Amplification and eXtended Reality concepts with unprecedented Smart Cybernetic Assistants and innovative deep indoor Networking and Positioning capabilities, to improve and accelerate the exploration and assessment of disaster zones. The project will validate its effectiveness in challenging, complex and complementary pilots to support rescue operations in areas that are complex or dangerous to explore.
Always first on scene, first responders will be able to immediately start operations without having to wait for specialized teams or for the zone to be fully secured. When these teams arrive, the INTREPID platform will already have given an invaluable headstart to First Responders, by gathering reliable information and offering effective assistance. The result is an immediate and targeted response that allows faster, more effective and safer operations.
The INTREPID consortium consists of world-class research centers and SMEs, coordinated by an industrial company with a leading position in the security sector.
The project follows a user-centric methodology involving many first responders organizations, and an international Advisory Board and Open User Group ensuring stakeholders diversity. Social, ethical and legal constraints are carefully considered during the whole project's lifetime. The project will design and implement a training curriculum and an innovative validation framework along with an ambitious communication and dissemination plan, laying the groundwork for successful exploitation of project results.
