Spatial Attention Mechanism for Weakly Supervised Fire and Traffic Accident Scene Classification

During the past ten years, on average there were nearly 16.5 thousands of hazardous material (hazmat) transport incidents per year resulting in $82 millions of damages. Prompt, accurate, objective assessment on hazmat incidents is important for the first-responders to take appropriate actions timely, which will reduce the damage of hazmat incidents and protect the safety of people and the environment. This multi-phase project aims to develop a method of processing and analyzing images captured by the crowdsourcing at incident scenes, which can aid the first-responders for hazmat incident assessment, decision-making, and reporting. The outcome of the project will be a component of a smart safety enhancement system that improves the responsiveness and effectiveness of emergency responders and hospitals in dealing with hazardous material transportation incidents.
