Project hes ended.


We all know the slogans ‘112 – saves lives’ and ‘112 – when every second counts’. Taking action as soon as possible after a report of an incident is vital. By adding images, sounds and other sensor signals to a spoken message, the emergency services can respond even faster and more adequately. That is the idea behind the Image Direction project. The Image Direction project examines how we can use images from various sources as smartly as possible, such as cameras, sensors, mobile phones, drones and social media. However, when an abundance of images (sources) becomes available, it is extremely important to find the right images. The process of directing these images is essential here. To better understand the ins and outs of this, the project team also has insights at organisations that have already gained a lot of knowledge and experience with this, such as the NOS (Dutch national broadcasting organisation).
