5G-TOURS airport evacuation use case

Implementation of 5G network is the driving force in meeting people's demand for an increasingly digital lifestyle. WINGS ICT SOLUTIONS is dealing with the Athens International Airport evacuation use case scenario, in the context of 5G-TOURS. The main goal of this use case is to exploit 5G capabilities in mobile AR applications for assisting current evacuation plans in large crowded indoor public spaces and thus, reduce the possibility or magnitude of casualties. Evacuating in a quick and organized way, through personalised, location based emergency routes from the affected area up to the muster areas, is of the utmost importance. 5G facilitates derivation of real-time data from the emergency environment which is to be evacuated, e.g. people locations, identification of persons trapped in isolated areas of the building and real-time flow management of the evacuees. Given the importance of quick and safe evacuation, 5G-TOURS vision to improve the life of citizens and tourists, is coming true, by making cities more safe for everybody.
