A cognitive approach for improving built environment and users’ safety in emergency conditions
Cognitive Systems can be applied in architectural spaces to improve Built Environment
performances basing on users’ needs. They can: 1) jointly monitor environmental conditions
and human behaviours through Cognitive Built Environment (CBE) components; 2) use
human-environment interaction models and related Key Performance Indicators to detect
critical situations; 3) adapt CBE devices status to inform users on how to properly behave. This
approach is applied to safety performances of outdoor (earthquake) and indoor (fire) scenarios,
by proposing and testing solutions to support evacuees while reaching safe areas and rescuers’
