Case Studies

Missing child in a tourist resort

Tourist resort contains various facilities like hotels, camps, apartments, beaches, pools, recreational areas etc. During a tourist season there are large number of tourists and visitors who often come from different countries and speak different languages. Central security service is responsible for maintaining safety and security of the tourists, staff and property. Locally installed CAP.CAP instance is accessible to operators and security officers. It connects all staff working in the resort: lifeguards, security officers, receptionists, bartenders, animators, waitors, managers etc. Connected staff use normal mobile phones for communication, and do not require special equipment or education for using the system.

In situation where resort capacity is full of tourists, it often happens that parent or guardian looses track of their child and cannot find it. Such a parent, in highly stressed situation, approaches resort staff who gets them in contact with responsible security officer. The officer requests information about the child, such as name, age, worn clothes, spoken language and picture of the child (typically provided as digital photo from mobile phone).

Based on gathered information, security officer uses CAP.CAP to generate message about missing child, which is automatically translated into targeted languages, and forwards the alert to all resort staff members through SMS and email. In couple of seconds all connected personnel receives an alert about missing child, including scanned picture of the child and with a text on the language child understands. Thus search for missing child can commence immediately on the whole areas where resort staff is present. After a staff member spots the missing child, he/she can notify the operations center by sending a picture of the child and the current location. Parents and security officers are immediately notified, while staff member can follow instructions and approach the missing child, communicating the basic information on the language that child understands, even if staff member does not understand or speak that language. A result is solved crisis situation in a matter of minutes.

Safety has the major effect on attractiveness of any location in the global tourist market, and has become a major criterion for choosing a vacation destination. Due to capability to establish simple, fast and precise communication channel, CAP.CAP represents important tool to increase overall safety and security of tourist destinations.

Embankment breach alert

Settlements along rivers are potentially threatened by possible embankment breaches and flood risk. In this situation rapid notification system plays a major role in saving lives and property. CAP.CAP system was introduced by the emergency operations center of the local community. When authorized institutions receive notice of rising water wave, officer in charge checks the protective embankment, and sends a private alert containing affected area, takes a picture of the embankment and exact location. Alert is received by emergency operations center, which notifies emergency officers in the area and issues a public alert that is disseminated to affected population. Private alerts are dispatched through email and SMS alert mechanisms, while public alerts are sent though emails, Twitter, Facebook and public web sites.

Officials and residents of the affected settlements are notified in a short period with accurate warning message containing exact location of the breach, affected areas and evacuation instructions in less that a minute. Officials on the ground can quickly send feedback on the changes as the situation evolves. Communication uses normal mobile handsets, which enables rapid inclusion of volunteers, rescue and emergency officers from other areas that do not posses or are trained with special radio equipment.

In this situation CAP.CAP achieves rapid communication mainly due to possibility exchaning text messages and graphical information, which provides just-in-time information about an imminent danger and instructions how to react. The information is not transmitted through voice, and thus quality and speed of communication is highly improved. Users of the system do not need special training. As accidents happen when least expected, secure and reliable multimedia communication tool is of great importance.

Fires in the open terrain, especially during summer, have tendency of sudden outbreaks, rapid and often unpredictable expansion which require quick and effective coordination of professional troops, volunteer firefighters, vulnerable population and visitors in the affected area.

In such chaotic circumstances, professional firefighters often can not timely and effectively cover wider area. Local population and volunteers might not have adequate equipment, training and means of communication to include them effectively in the intervention before professional units can be engaged. Using CAP.CAP system operations center can alert and coordinate the voluntary firefighters and professional troops, by providing communication support and information transfer between improvised teams formed on the ground. By submitting graphic instructions on equipment handling, behavioral and communication protocols to volunteers it reduces the possibility of injury to non-professional participants engaged in the situation. Using the correct positioning and Geo-mapping professional troops are getting a far better ability to monitor the state of the fire even when sustained and prompt air surveillance is not available. Public warnings can be automatically translated into foreign languages, and tourist professionals in the field can transmit appropriate instructions to visitors even in cases where they are not familiar with foreign languages  spoken by visitors.

In such situation CAP.CAP enables rapid adding of new contacts to the communication system according to situational developments in the field. Since the communication using mobile devices, it does not require special equipment or training for members of ad-hoc teams. This allows establishment of an ad-hoc two-way communication between the teams on the field that previously were not organized properly. Transferring information text messages, instructions, terrain maps greatly shortens notification time and improves information quality. Automatic translation into foreign languages raises the safety of tourists in the area.
