Emergency services depend on reliable information for decisions regarding traffic management and emergency logistics during crisis situations. KeepOperational offers security-protected web interfaces to provide an easy access to the developed functionality and traffic information from other solitary and usually “closed” systems, such as sensor data from traffic control systems. In contrast to publicly available information portals KeepOperational provides an added value by considering typical specification and special requirements of emergency services. In addition, the reliability of the traffic information is enhanced by specifying quality indexes.
