Abstrakt

Traffic accidents are a result of the convergence of hazards, malfunctioning of vehicles and human negligence that have both economic and health adverse impacts and effects. Unfortunately, avoiding them completely is very difficult, but with quick response to rescue and first aid, the mortality rate of inflicted person can be reduced significantly. Smart and innovative technologies can play a pivotal role to respond faster to traffic crash emergencies comparing conventional means of transportation. For instance, Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) can provide faster and real time crash site’s risk assessment to emergency medical services, thereby helping them to quickly assess, dispatch right equipment and assist bystanders to treat inflicted person properly. To conduct a research in this regard, a case of a traffic roundabout that is prone to frequent traffic
accidents in outskirts of Esbjerg, a town located on western coast of Denmark is hypothetically considered. Along with manual calculations, Emergency Disaster Management Simulation (EDMSIM) has been used to verify the response time of UAS from a fire station of the town to the presumed crash site. Results of the study demonstrates the robustness of UAS into emergency services to help save lives.
