  • FireGrid: An e-infrastructure for next-generation emergency response support 

    Han, Liangxiu; Potter, Stephen; Beckett, George; Pringle, Gavin; Welch, Stephen; Koo, Sung-Han; Wickler, Gerhard; Usmani, Asif; Torero, Jose L; Tate, Austin (Elsevier Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing, 2010)
    The FireGrid project aims to harness the potential of advanced forms of computation to support the response to large-scale emergencies (with an initial focus on the response to fires in the built environment). Computational ...
  • FireGrid: Integrated emergency response and fire safety engineering for the future built environment 

    Berry, Dave; Usmani, Asif; Torero, Jose L; Tate, Austin; McLaughlin, Stephen; Potter, Stephen; Trew, Arthur; Baxter, Rob; Bull, Mark; Atkinson, Malcolm (UK e-Science Programme All Hands Meeting, 2005-09-20)
    Analyses of disasters such as the Piper Alpha explosion (Sylvester-Evans and Drysdale, 1998), the World Trade Centre collapse (Torero et al, 2002 , Usmani et al, 2003) and the fires at Kings Cross (Drysdale et al, 1992) ...
  • FireGrid: Integrated emergency response and fire safety engineering for the future built environment 

    Berry, Dave; Usmani, Asif; Torero, Jose L; Tate, Austin; McLaughlin, Stephen; Potter, Stephen; Trew, Arthur; Baxter, Rob; Bull, Mark; Atkinson, Malcolm (National eScience Centre, Edinburgh, 2005-05)
    FireGrid is researching the development and integration of modelling, sensors, Grid, HPC, and C/C technologies. It will stimulate further research, in new safety systems and strategies, in new sensor technologies, in ...
  • The Helpful Environment: distributed agents and services which cooperate 

    Tate, Austin (International Workshop on Cooperative Information Agents, 2006-05)
    Imagine a future environment where a network of sophisticated sensors, protection, and repair systems will be integral to clothing, communications devices, vehicles, transportation systems, buildings, and the environment. ...
  • The Helpful Environment: Geographically dispersed intelligent agents that collaborate 

    Tate, Austin (IEEE Intelligent Systems, 2006-05)
    Imagine a future environment where a network of sophisticated sensors, protection, and repair systems will be integral to clothing, communications devices, vehicles, transportation systems, buildings, and the environment. ...
  • Using I-X Process Panels as Intelligent To-Do Lists for Agent Coordination in Emergency Response 

    Potter, Stephen; Tate, Austin; Wickler, Gerhard (Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management 2006 (ISCRAM2006), 2006-05)
    The aim of this paper is to describe the I-X system with its principal user interface, the I-X Process Panel, its underlying ontology, <I-N-C-A>, and how this panel can be used as an intelligent to-do list that assists ...
  • Using Simulation for Decision Support: Lessons Learned from FireGrid 

    Wickler, Gerhard; Beckett, George; Han, Liangxiu; Koo, Sung-Han; Potter, Stephen; Pringle, Gavin; Tate, Austin (The Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management (ISCRAM) Community, 2009-05)
    This paper describes some of the lessons learned from the FireGrid project. It starts with a brief overview of the project. The discussion of the lessons learned that follows is intended for others attempting to develop a ...
  • Using the <I-N-C-A> Constraint Model as a Shared Representation of Intentions for Emergency Response 

    Wickler, Gerhard; Tate, Austin; Potter, Stephen (Fifth International Joint Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems, 2006-05-08)
    The aim of this paper is to describe the I-X system with its underlying representation: <I-N-C-A>. The latter can be seen as a description of an agent’s intentions, which can be shared and communicated amongst multiple ...
