The main objective of the TRACE project is the transfer of the European technology developed in the project CHARADE, within which a generic platform for handling environmental emergencies was developed. TRACE aims at demonstrating the viability of transferring this technology both in new operational contexts and in other application domains.
The project takes input also from the European VALUE project EUCEP, which deals with a feasibility study for the exploitation of CHARADE in western Europe, in particular Spain and Portugal.
The TRACE workplan foresees two main phases:
- transferring two leading technologies of CHARADE, namely the task-centred design methodology and
- development of two pilot applications demonstrating the viability of the transfer in new contexts and new applications domains.
Activities include: training and use of user-centred techniques for the design, development and evaluation of complex interaction systems; development of a task editor supporting requirement analysis, functional design, interaction design and user interface layout definition; improvement of the basic layer of the CHARADE platform; tailoring and improvement of constraint based tools used in CHARADE for planning and scheduling fire interventions; development of a pilot application for the wind throw assessment in Romanian forests; and, development of a pilot application for fire fighting in Bulgarian hard massifs.
