Designing Better Tools For Communication During Crisis
A prototype platform demonstrates how web and mobile tools can help workers in rescue situations.
LSSE (Locate, Support, Survive and Endure) is a concept platform that combines mobile devices, the web, and intelligent design thinking to provide better communications during crisis . The LSSE system is made up of four components that provide various types of status during rescue missions: LSSE Kit (for rescuee), S&R Field-Tool (for rescuer), Dashboard (for coordination), Volunteer Network (for support). In crisis situations, the mobile application allows workers to quickly monitor the conditions of survivors who have been delivered LSSE kits, and gives them a way to communicate back with rescue workers and health professionals.
