TREEADS aims to increase environmental sustainability and urban/ rural ecosystems safety through redefining and reinforcing forests protection and management by developing and validating an innovative, sustainable and applied holistic wildfire management approach.
The project introduces a number of innovations including:
Combination of highly divergent sources of data, originating from both the cyber field and heterogeneous sensors in the physical field.
Early detection and timely risk assessment to allow prevention or mitigation of the consequences of catastrophic events.
Introduction of socio-geographical and socio-economic factors for the accurate evaluation of risk analysis.
Automation in most of the steps that need to be taken during firefighters’ operations to minimize all the significant impacts of fires.
Interoperability and scalability of the Ecosystem due to the use of open APIs and common data format for all data sources.
Four-layered approach utilisation in the monitoring of forests by exploiting three types of unmanned aerial vehicles and satellite data.
Multi-stakeholder approach for efficient integration of expert knowledge in forested social and ecological systems; forest economics and policy; and existing EU initiatives and services.
New fire resilient materials, insurance models, health monitoring, AR tools for fire responders, and a drone seeding technology and satellite data.
Desktop and mobile user interface of the main computational system provides real time information of the current status, plus the results of the computational analysis of the modules.
TREEADS has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 101036926.
