FiToViz: A Visualisation Approach for Real-Time Risk Situation Awareness uri icon


  • © 2010-2012 IEEE.People often face risk-prone situations, that range from a mild event to a severe, life-threatening scenario. Risk situations stem from a number of different scenarios: a health condition, a hazard situation due to a natural disaster, a dangerous situation because one is being subject to a crime or physical violence, among others. The lack of a prompt response, calling for assistance, may severely worsen the consequences. In this paper, we propose a novel visualisation method to track and to identify, in real-time, when a person is under a risk-prone situation. Our visualisation model is capable of providing a decision maker a visual description of the physiological behaviour of an individual, or a group thereof; through it, the decision maker may infer whether further assistance is required, if a risky situation is in progress. Our visualisation is leveraged with a traffic light model of a one-class classifier. This combination allows us to train the decision maker into visualising correct and potential risky or abnormal behaviour.
