THE USE OF SIMULATION IN THE MODEL OF CRISIS MANAGEMENT
Safety as essential quality, needed in the development strategy of every city should be constantly improved by newest technologies. As currently used software and practices were studied, it can be seen that in Smart City concepts, technologies help with governing the city mainly in the field of obtaining, processing and providing information. Interconnection of many various information sources brings the possibility of storing all the information in one central data storage, instead of separated storages for every individual informational source. Taking the information from a central informational centre and their automatic, real-time visualization by simulation technologies can improve safety in the below described ways. By combining advantages of interconnectivity and simulation technologies, we aim to take advantage of their identified possibilities in order to enhance crisis management in all phases of its model. The period before crisis event occurrence consists of the phaseof prevention and the phase of crisis planning. Within the period after crisis event occurrence, there are phases of response and recovery. In this paper, we also present The Laboratory of Modelling and Simulation of Crisis Phenomena in Traffic, which is a part of the University Science Park of the University of Žilina. This laboratory disposes of program VR Forces®, that is used in our research.
