Thanks to all participants

After the pilot exercise a workshop with all available operators was organised to collect their feedbacks to improve the FASTER adherence to first responders’ needs.

18 first responders participated the experience and the discussion was mainly focused on how FASTER outcomes could be integrated in the future with existing certified procedures. Two main issues were addressed out of the general positive reaction to those new technologies: the first one is related to regulation which are limiting the use of UAVs mainly in view of the use of autonomous operations and remote driving; the second issue is related to privacy when using smart textiles to collect bio-physiological data.

The possibility to enlarge the test environment of some technologies: chatbot and GCOP-PCOP has also been discussed, in a possible wild fire situation.

 Thanks to all participants.
