Berlin-based research institute Fraunhofer FOKUS established an exemplary control room in its safety lab. The lab allows users to simulate various scenarios and especially the collaboration within crisis and catastrophe management. The goal is to enable efficient public safety through joint crisis management.

Fraunhofer FOKUS together with its partners Cisco, CONET, Frequentis, Hörmann, IBM, Motionlogic provides a specially equipped demonstration room in Berlin. The safety lab offers experts, decision makers and politicians a research laboratory and thus an independent environment to simulate the interaction of legal, organizational, sociological and economic challenges.

As one of six specialized industry and technology partners, CONET supports the safety lab with its experience in the setup of joint communications infrastructures and the CONET UC Radio Suite, which deals with diverse integration, communications and control tasks in the demo system.

The safety lab is part of the Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems FOKUS in Berlin. The institute develops different competence center solutions for future information systems and investigates which impact and characteristics communications networks must have to be able to make life more comfortable and safe.

The Competence Center for Electronic Safety and Security Solutions for the Public and Industries (ESPRI) is responsible for research in public safety. Solutions for a better management of and coping with threat scenarios and the interconnection of already existing security solutions take center stage in this research.
