The Use Case will take place in Poggioreale, a small community in Sicily, Italy, set in the Belice valley, which administratively belongs to the province of Trapani (TP). On the night of January 15th, 1968, a terrible earthquake raked through the Valle del Belice in southwest Sicily. Around 900 people died and ten towns and villages were significantly damaged.
Due to its current situation, the city is the perfect scenario to simulate an earthquake. A whole series of ad hoc situations will be simulated, in which the contribution of the tools/equipment developed within the project will be tested.
In UC1 we expect to simulate:

  • people trapped under the rubble and / or in premises not reachable as a consequence to the earthquake;
  • the release of gases and / or other toxic substances;
  • blocked roads preventing traditional vehicles to reach the area.
