1. Alarm Information for Decision Support
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1614
Topic: Cybernetic Building Systems
Published: 11/4/2010
Authors: William D. Davis, Adam M. Barowy, Stephen Kerber
Abstract: Experiments conducted in a Toledo Ohio school are used to examine the use of signals from simulated heat detectors by incident command. Two approaches are examined. The first is to use the signal from ceiling mounted thermocouples to deduce condit ...
