System-Of-Systems for efficient Emergency Response and smart mobility (SoSER)
Research Project , 2019 – 2022

The project is coordinated by Chalmers University of Technology, and collaborated with RISE Viktoria, VTI, Uppsala University, Medfield Diagnostics AB, H&E Solutions, WSP and FellowBot. The total budget including matchup contributions is 10.416 Million SEK. 

Optimal emergency responses are strategic to smart urban mobility and Vision Zero. Innovative technologies such as connected vehicles and infrastructure, advanced medical devices, and artificial intelligence have enabled new solutions for emergency responses. However, realization of efficient response requires smooth cooperation among multiple systems including infrastructure planners, traffic operators, medical services, and public safety answ ering point. This socio-technical interconnected system forms a typical system-of-systems application environment that goes beyond the current system engineering capabilities. By incorporating global and national efforts on system of systems engineering (SoSE), this project aims to develop SoSE methodologies for emergency responses including architecting, modeling, simulation and integration. As such, the project will deliver an efficient system of systems for emergency response that enhances urban mobility in the event of traffic accidents. 

The project is in collaboration with Dr Ying Yang of Australian Catholic University, as a co-PI, who is leading WP4 infrastructure adaptation.
