As of now, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference when an alarm sounds. One may mistake this alarm for a drill and remain in the classroom, without a concern with regards to the dangers of their actions. One such case would be the recent fire outbreak in Singapore Polytechnic’s hilltop. As there was no P.A. system, it was impossible to know whether the sound represented a drill or an actual emergency situation. Many students still remained in class even with the constant sounding of the alarm, treating it as a drill or alarm maintenance, until after more than 5 minutes, when teachers stormed into classrooms to evacuate students. This brought upon immediate chaos, many students were caught off guard and had no idea what was actually going on. As such, there needs to be a monitor of the movement of connections in Singapore Polytechnic, so that students are capable of understanding and differentiating a drill from a real fire outbreak, by looking at the movement of connections within the various access points.
Also, it is hard for students to know which food courts are crowded or have no seats, given that they are in class and are planning on where to go for lunch. As such, there needs such a monitor which is capable of monitoring the population at various areas, so that they are able to plan their route, to have a satisfying lunch in peace.
Security Intelligence Map provides both staff and students of Singapore Polytechnic a visible indication on the locations of the various areas in the school, through a map. This map further allows its users to view the concentration of people at a particular area, and thus of which creates a “heatmap”. Using this derived information, students are capable of avoiding crowds during peak periods. Staffs are capable of monitoring the internet traffic and/or human traffic, based on their needs.
Possibility to expand this technology out to more areas, not only limited to one school.
