After working on their bachelor project "Human-in-the-loop-Simulation of Mass Casualty Incidents as Training for Emergency Medical Personnel" for two semesters, the student team presented their results at the HPI Bachelorpodium 2021 under the title:

  • Große Katastrophe auf kleinem QR-Code: Eine Simulationsübung für medizinische Großeinsätze"

In their project, the team developed an app that enables emergency medical personnel to efficiently practice the tratment of large amounts of injured persons during a mass casualty incident. The project was conducted in cooperation with the German Federal Academy for Civil Protection and Civil Defense (Bundesakademie für Bevölkerungsschutz und Zivile Verteidigung, BABZ) and the volunteer aid organization Malteser Hilfsdienst e.V. Berlin.

The HPI Bachelorpodium in this year took place as a live-streamed hybrid event on 8. July 2021. A recoding of the talk (in German) can be seen here:

The student team consists of Nils Cichy, Michel Klappert, Dale Nows, Chiara Schirmer, Patricia Sowa. They were supervised by Prof. Dr. Holger Giese, Christian Zöllner and Matthias Barkowsky. The students also successfully wrote their bachelor's theses on various topics related to the main project.

We thank the student team for their motivated work at the System Analysis and Modeling group in the previous two semester and for their impressive results!

It is planned to continue the development of the app at the System Anaylsis and Modeling group.
