Do you know what the Fire Emergency Plan (FEP) is? Well, it outlines fire safety measures in designated premises, including floor layout plans and fire evacuation procedures. But did you know that there’s currently no system in place to guide or navigate people in the event of a fire? That’s where the Automated Navigation System (ANS) comes in.
The ANS is the brainchild of Subrahmanyam Pilaka Venkata; let us tell you, it’s a game-changer! “The ANS system is a groundbreaking technology that can revolutionize the way we respond to fires and other emergencies,” says Venkata. The ANS system has a provisional patent registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Organization (USPTO) and the Qatar Ministry of Commerce and Industry.
Red Dot Films recently produced a video showcasing the ANS system, and let us tell you, it’s not your average fire safety video. The video shows the reason behind the fire and its aftermath, including public confusion and fear. The ANS was developed to address these issues and provide people with accurate information about the location of the fire, escape routes, staircases, and exits. “The video was both fun and informative,” says Ali, a graphic designer at Red Dot.
Red Dot Films used infographics, photos, and 2D and 3D elements to explain the technical details of the ANS system engagingly. “The sound effects really made me feel like I was in the middle of a fire emergency,” says Ali. They even incorporated music to keep things upbeat and fun.
Overall, the ANS system is a fantastic addition to any fire emergency response plan. It’s an essential tool that can help prevent fire casualties and ensure the safety of building occupants. So, the next time you’re in a public building, rest assured, knowing that there are plans and procedures in place to keep you safe in the event of a fire. Who knows, maybe one day you’ll even see the ANS system in action!
