Last night a smartphone saved my life. New opportunities in alarming and evacuation with digitalization
There are many aspects of digitalization when it comes to fire safety. Implementing and applying a digital twin also provides new prospects when alarming and evacuating people from a building. Introducing a softwarebased simulation already during the planning phase will result in a frictionless evacuation process: any problems due to the building's construction may be erased at an early stage. . Later on in case of a real emergency the evacuation process will operate on real time data in order to optimize escape routes automatically. Plus: In case of fire people may receive a message on their smartphone (via twitter or other messenger services). This will include information about the situation and what exactly to do. So even smartphones may become live saving instruments.
