Chapter 21

Sense and Response Systems for Crisis Management

J.J. Bunn, K.M. Chandy, M. Faulkner, A.H. Liu, M. Olson

21.1 Introduction

Sensing and responding to disasters to critical infrastructure requires systems that deal with both the physical aspects of the environment (e.g., geology of fault zones and structural dynamics of buildings) as well as the information technology (sensors, data fusion, control, and alerting). Sensors in many parts of world can be connected through the Internet to Cloud computing services that aggregate data and detect critical events.

Networks for responding to hazards may include small numbers of high-precision, expensive sensors integrated with dense networks of inexpensive, lower-precision instruments. Expensive ...
