New Disaster Shelters Use Edge AI to Manage Pandemics

Pain Points of Traditional Disaster Shelters

  • Disaster shelters are typically set up in schools, gyms, public halls or community centers with little or no patient-to-patient or doctor-to-patient separation.
  • They require a large number of front-line staff to manage everything on the ground.
  • Due to the urgency in accommodating large numbers of victims in these places, these makeshift indoor spaces are often overcrowded and utilized as much as possible.

New Disaster Shelter Criteria

  • Prepare more sites in advance for disaster shelters in order to reroute much of the affected population.
  • To avoid gathering in large crowds, it is recommended that affected people seek refuge at the homes of relatives or friends.
  • All people entering the disaster shelter must be physically examined.
  • Disaster shelters should focus on maintaining good ventilation.
  • Disaster shelters must provide dedicated spaces for people with fevers or other symptoms, and provide a dedicated bathroom to people with abnormal health symptoms if possible.
