Ongoing Projects

Wearable devices and augmented reality are rapidly evolving and are particularly applicable in the service sector, such as safety, health, education, etc. In the field of security services, in particular the no-contact / lone security positions, device handler technology can offer innovative services. In particular, it can further secure the individual protection of staff in existing security services and improve their mental concentration and perceptual capacity, which assists in decision-making. Portable devices can detect the presence, biometric data of the guardian, and many additional elements that are useful both in the service they perform and the personal safety of the workers.

The goal of the project is to develop systems and applications that will receive and process data from smart wearable to record biometric data for the purposes of health and vital safety monitoring, positioning and presence / commencement / ending of the shift, direct notification and other required services, such as indications of danger, attack, etc. These devices will automatically wirelessly connect with additional equipment (ambient sensors and positional beacons) and their data will be combined with the cameras data. Systems of Augmented / Mixed reality will also be developed in addition to simply record and track signals, more effectively manage the data from incident management center operators and supporting decision-making by the end user (guardian).

Due to the variety of data to be transmitted and stored, a combination of modern signal processing and machine learning techniques is needed through the creation of a knowledge base. The latter will be shaped by the data collected per event. There will also be use of pioneering security techniques which combine multi-parametric authentication, such as the use of biometric elements (something the user is) with equipment components (somethingthe user has), which will be physically resistant to cloning, that is to say they will exhibit structural features that will make them unique. Some of the most important issues that will be addressed in the project are the data transmission security and the use of blockchain technology for secure data storage (protection against unauthorized data alteration, PUF assisted encryption), as well as the use of security technologies to protect personal data (use of nicknames and aliases, PUF reciprocal authentication). In the strand of augmented reality, the technological innovation that the project introduces is multidimensional. More specifically, this project is the first national effort to develop an integrated augmented/mixed reality platform that acts on both the field and the control center. The development of AR interfaces for managing information in the field of security services is an innovation of the project. Also, the development of ergonomic interfaces based on the geometric representation of the area of interest combined with the use of maps in an augmented reality environment is another innovation the project aspires to introduce. Finally, all applications that will be deployed will respect the privacy of users by complying to the requirements of innovative and academically recognized methodologies, while ensuring all the technical and organizational requirements set by the new General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GCC-GDPR) are met.

Any public or private infrastructure that plays a critical role in a country’s economy and society and the loss of which would risk society is defined as critical infrastructure. The fact that these infrastructures are interconnected with the ultimate goal of maximizing the benefit to the country’s economy is the key element according to which they are considered vital.

In this infrastructure, the security personnel on the ground must have the necessary information available for incident management, but at the same time, their own protection. Control center operators, on the other hand, are often called upon to manage large volumes of information and act while performing multiple and varied processes. It is obvious that the presence of a decision-making system that uses advanced artificial intelligence technologies that will process multiple streams of data from the storage facilities, such as video from CCTV already installed, makes the management of serious incidents that take place in critical infrastructure but also the decision making by the operator.

In addition, by introducing wearable device technologies that will collect and transmit, to the decision-making system, health data of each guard in order, in addition to the simple recording and monitoring of health indications by the center operators, to be informed about various issues that will help to cope with various situations. Of course, the collection and processing of personal data, and in particular health data, will be done protecting the privacy of users and in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The result is maximized with the use of augmented reality technologies as through them the decision making system will be able to provide directly to the field and the center the necessary information for the management of the incidents and it will be possible to download video from the place where the incident occurs. which will improve the view of the incident to the operators of the center.

SafeIT integrates the above technologies into a system whose security is enhanced by the use of innovative security techniques that combine multi-parametric authentication, such as the use of biometric elements, with components of equipment that are, however, resistant to natural cloning. will present constructional peculiarities that will make them unique.

Maritime transport (Ports, Port Facilities, Ships) are considered vital infrastructure. The protection of these infrastructures from illegal actions contributes to the formation and ensuring of an environment of smoothness and safety in transport. The following sections present SafeIT usage scenarios for the Preveza port facility as they emerged through interviews and the use of questionnaires, which are the most common cases of small, medium or large scale crisis for which modern Critical Infrastructure Security Plans are vital. have provided for management measures and procedures. Then, for the design and implementation of the SafeIT system, for each of the above scenarios, the functional and non-functional requirements for the SafeIT subsystems and applications are extracted. For each incident, the necessary datasets are extracted that will be used for the design and training of the machine learning algorithms that will compose the decision-making system that will manage the selected incidents as well as similar incidents in real time. This means that whenever a new scenario arises in the future, the requirements (functional and non-functional) of the script as well as the datasets will be exported either for the training of a new algorithm which will then be integrated into the SafeIT decision making system, or, whenever possible to retrain existing algorithms. In this way the system will be scalable for the management of any other scenario as the augmented reality, authentication and health data download services are stable and independent of the decision making system. By adopting an appropriate data model from the system it will be possible to add new decision-making algorithms and support new incident management.

The SafeIT program is part of the Joint Action of State Aid for Research Projects “Research – Create – Innovate”, which is co-financed by the EU. (European Regional Development Fund) and national resources, within the framework of EPANEK (NSRF 2014-2020).

The Special Intermediary Body for the management of the Unified Action “Research-Create-Innovate” has been appointed the Special Service for Management and Implementation of Actions in the fields of Research, Technological Development and Innovation (EYDE ETAK).
