PANOPTIS Development of a Decision Support System for increasing the Resilience of Transportation Infrastructure based on combined use of terrestrial and airborne sensors and advanced modelling tools


Description:

The PANOPTIS project aims at increasing the resilience (ability to adapt) of road infrastructure under unfavourable conditions, such as extreme weather, landslides, and earthquakes. Its main goal is to combine downscaled climate change scenarios (applied to road infrastructure) with structural and geotechnical simulation tools, and with actual data from sensors (terrestrial and airborne) so as to provide the operators with an integrated tool able to support more effective management of infrastructure at planning, maintenance and operational level. Towards this, PANOPTIS specifically aims to:

  • use high resolution modelling data for the determination and the assessment of the climatic risk of the selected transport infrastructures and associated expected damages
  • combine existing structural health monitoring data with new types of sensor-generated data to accurately determine the infrastructure vulnerability
  • use tailored weather forecasts combining all available data sources for specific hot-spots; this can provide early warnings with the corresponding impact assessment in real time
  • develop improved multi-temporal, multi-sensor aerial (UAV) and satellite-based observations with robust data processing to provide accurate damage diagnostics for diverse transport infrastructures
  • design and implement a Holistic Resilience Assessment Platform as an innovative planning tool able to perform a quantitative resilience assessment employing an end-to-end simulation environment and “what-if” impact/risk/resilience assessment scenarios. The effects of adaptation measures can be explored by changing the hazard, exposure and vulnerability input parameters.
  • design and implement a Common Operational Picture, including an enhanced visualisation interface and an Incident Management System.

The PANOPTIS integrated platform (and its sub-modules) will be validated in two real case studies in Spain and in Greece.
