Purpose and goal

This project is an international research effort dealing with emergency responses in the event of traffic accidents via emerging technologies and equipment. We intend to develop a holistic and integrated emergency management system that is able to take into account pre-hospital screening, hospital selection, EV optimal routing, intelligent infrastructure adaptation, traffic flow control and congestion management, V2X communication, and system integration.

Expected results and effects

The market and social potentials of this proposed research are immense. We expect to substantially improve the current practice of emergency management, save thousands of lives and contribute to the ultimate goal of zero death. The developed technologies and equipment can also be used by other areas related to emergency management such as evacuation and disaster response. We will further strengthen the collaborations between Sweden and China in the area of emergency management through joint Sino-Sweden workshops.

Planned approach and implementation

The Swedish team, led by Chalmers University of Technology, includes four research institutions and four industry partners. The team will closely work with Chinese counterparts for five work packages, including accident and injury prevention, resource planning, infrastructure adaptation, traffic flow control, and system integration. We plan to have a simulation demonstration in Sweden and pilot demonstration in China.
