The COVID 19 crisis has exposed major weaknesses in our preparedness against sudden disasters and crises. Improper preparation against such disasters have caused needless deaths and destruction. Proper preparation and management of such frequently occurring disasters can save lives and prevent extreme spending in containment and relief.
Design a system that can predict an incoming disaster and help minimize casualties and damage during the disaster.
Some of the areas of focus and improvements are shown below (Not compulsory):
- P1: Internet of Things and its applications in disaster preparedness and response (Sensor networks for early warning, Drone applications in relief operations)
- P2: Alternative communication methods (Satellite and Radio-communication technologies in case telecom services are disturbed or destroyed)
- P3: Post Disaster Response (Relief supply tracking to prevent fraud, Telemedicine services in case of physical injury or harm)
- P4: Damage assessment using Deep Learning/ Computer Vision to efficiently deploy rescue personnel and resources
