The end-to-end system ECO4CO is based on the following main pillars:
ECO4CO provides a fully autonomous and automated end-to-end system, combining data from satellites (image acquisition, GNSS/EGNOS navigation data), the Internet (social media, news, etc.) and traffic (mobile, automotive).
By exploiting the functionalities offered by its main pillars, the system provides end-users (authorities, civil protection, etc.) with notification, warning and timely/geolocalised communication services covering potential risk areas, criticalities regarding facilities or medical storage and mass movements. The ultimate goal is to provide crucial information in order to be able to effectively prevent new outbreaks, and to react in advance in an upcoming critical situation.
Telespazio co-ordinates the project's activities in collaboration with e-GEOS, Leonardo, ITHACA, Cherrydata and the University of Rome "La Sapienza".
The project also won the prize awarded by UNIDO - United Nations Industrial Development Organization - for "Innovative ideas and technologies vs Covid 19 and beyond" in the Health Emergency category.
