The FASTER project covering a set of very innovative technologies for first responders met the IMPETUS COSSEC assembly to share awareness around the overall First Responder approach toward emergencies and criminal offences.

The IMPETUS approach addresses three complementary but overlapping areas:

  • Technologies: use the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Big Data analysis to integrate and develop the tools and processes allowing cities to manage both physical and cyber security
  • Ethics: ensure Smart City capabilities are developed for the benefit of its citizens and to balance potentially conflicting needs to collect, transform and share large amounts of data in accordance with data privacy
  • Processes: delivering a multi-tenant solution fully aligned with the cognitive processes, deployment guidelines and operational needs that support the decision making of multiple city stakeholders involved

The city oriented view of IMPETUS ideally couples the FASTER used of innovative technologies in field.
