EMTEL; Study of use cases and communications involving IoT devices in provision of emergency situations
|Publication Date:||1 July 2019|
The present document considers communications involving IoT devices in all types of emergency situations. This includes the use of IoT devices to enhance:
• Emergency calling, e.g. between individuals and emergency authorities/organiza
• Mission critical communications within emergency services/public safety organizations, e.g. between public safety officers and control centres, between the control centres of different public safety organizations, and between individual public safety officers.
• Public Warning System type communications from authorities to the general public.
• Automated emergency response (new IoT domain) between two IoT devices.
The current state of the art for IoT device communications, especially when relevant to emergency situations, is described and use cases illustrate how such communications can be used to provide additional/enhanced information for communicating parties involved in emergency situations.
The impact of the use cases on the existing emergency, public warning, and mission critical communications is then considered, and recommendations for requirements to existing specifications for each domain are provided.
