  1. Motivation • Existing systems are based on user input (assume

    location knowledge) • Not "smart" enough • Not open • Not accessible
  2. Incident Identification Platform • Detect incidents without assuming any location

    knowledge • Detect both static and evolving incidents • Web based platform (accessible) • Mobile clients for Android™ devices • Communication using open APIs and common protocols (HTTP) • Open source
  3. Static Incidents 1. calculate all possible incidents using the collected

    reports 2. filter out too distant incidents 3. calculate the average incident location 4. calculate standard deviation of incidents and the average location 5. determine safe point of location identification
  4. Evaluation • collecting real data (using different mobile devices) •

    collecting virtual data (using gmaps) • randomizing collected data (location) • randomizing collected data (run order) • replaying scenarios • plotting results
  5. Detection Algorithm Tracking Algorithm • 3 main phases • filtering

    based on time and space criteria • can detect evolving incidents • adjusting existing position using two different algorithms • scalable
