Technological pillars

which will address the technological requirements of the project

Climate, Atmospheric Forcing and Multi-Hazard Modelling

Introduction of a research framework for estimating environmental risk down to the IWW scale and providing high-resolution maps of environmental pressures whereupon fragility/vulnerability functions for IWW sites will be determined.

Multi-Hazard Vulnerability Modules and Assessment Toolkit (MHVAT) for IWW and assets

The development of the Toolkit software will suit to offer an integrated analytical assessment of the vulnerability of IWW under natural or/and man-made hazards, as well as mixed hazard.

Improved Computer Vision (CV) Techniques and ML Techniques

PLOTO aims to use existing monitoring tools that will be supported by novel Computer Vision (CV) techniques and ML algorithms.

Remote Sensing, including Quick Assessment Damage Maps

The system developed in the project can provide local details in case of a significant disaster event, thus completing the damage maps generated through Copernicus EMS.

Fore-Now/Casting Weather Predictions Methods & Tools

Implementation of Early Warning Systems (EWS) to anticipate extreme weather events and their impact on the IWW and connected networks.

PLOTO Middleware and Data Fusion (DF)

Implementation of a novel middleware that will incorporate current information systems, but also available sensor networks. The DF Languages (DFL) in PLOTO will be a language that provides the functionality else offered through several engines.

IWW Assessment Tool (IWAT) and IWW Digital Twin (DT)

IWAT will undertake the integration and chaining of the hazard analysis and simulation tools providing the simulation to run impact/resilience assessment scenarios for the test cases. The IWW DT will build a data representation of assets, processes and systems in the IWW-built and natural environment.

Enhanced visualisation Common Operational Picture (COP), Incident Management System (IMS) and Decision Support System (DSS)
All COP functionalities will be integrated to enable enhanced situational awareness capabilities to the IWW operators. The IMS will implement protocols for multiagency interaction and communication to integrate and synchronise actions of participating organisations and jurisdictions to ensure unity of effort. The DSS aims to support human reasoning, assisting IWW operators in the decision-making process.
