Description

This third volume of the Wireless Public Safety Networks series explores new tendencies in the Public Safety Networks (PSNs) field, highlighting real-use cases and applications that can be used by practitioners to help victims in the case of danger.
Wireless Public Safety Networks 3: Applications and Uses explores, from the communication point of view, how teams can interact with and use new technologies and tools. These technologies can have a huge impact in the field of disaster management and greatly improve the efficiency of teams handling emergency situations.
This volume of the series covers themes as varied as emergency alert systems, the organization of aerial platforms and the use of smartphones to detect earthquakes and to help in the resolution of kidnappings. 

Key Features

  • Presents a broad view on the field of PSNs
  • Explores the main challenges associated with their use
  • Presents the latest advancements in the field and its future perspectives

Readership

Researchers, scientists, postgraduate students in the areas of communications and signal processing
