Successful final review of the AWARE project 
The reviewers of the European research project AWARE (IST-2006-33579) congratulate all project partners with their excellent work and the great results that have been accomplished in the project. With this final review, the technical part of the project, in which the Pervasive Systems group took part, has officially been concluded.

The objectives of the project were the design and development of a platform providing the middleware and the functionalities required for the cooperation among aerial flying objects, i.e. autonomous helicopters, and a ground sensor-actuator wireless network, including mobile nodes carried by people and vehicles.

One of the focus application scenarios of the AWARE project is disaster management and civil security, in which wireless sensors are autonomously deployed and collaboratively detect critical events. When a critical event –such as fire- has been detected, autonomous helicopters fly to the event area and collect detailed information with their on-board sensors and cameras. In addition, the health conditions, location and activity of personnel are continuously monitored through sensors in their clothing. The AWARE platform provides critical information to rescue operators or fire fighters to make their actions more efficient, but also to save their lives by early warning for dangers.

"In this project, we had a strong scientific focus, but we also demonstrated the designed systems in practice", says Lodewijk van Hoesel. "This stimulated intensive collaboration between the project partners and allowed us to show the results of our research to a broad audience and international press."
