An Application of Multi-Criteria Analysis to Ascertain the Desirability of Individual System Components within the SAVE ME Project

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Gareth Evans, Professor Phil Blythe



The EU FP7 funded SAVE ME project investigated the potential for an innovative technological system which could detect the location and nature of disaster events in public transport terminals, vehicles or critical infrastructures (i.e. tunnels and bridges) and then support the quick and efficient mass evacuation guidance of travellers , as well as optimise the actions of rescue teams. The overarching aim of the SAVE ME system is to save the lives of the general public and the rescuers, giving particular emphasis to the most vulnerable travellers, such as children, older people and those with physical limitations. This paper provides a summary of a multi - criteria analysis exercise to help quantify the utility and desirability of six key SAVE ME system components from the perspective of industry professionals.
