BRIN Creates a Sensor-Based Platform for Monitoring the Risk of COVID-19 Spread


Suara.com – The National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN) developed the LAPAN Hub COVID-19 platform to monitor the level of risk of the spread of COVID-19 in an area using remote sensing technology.

“We developed the LAPAN Hub COVID-19 platform which shows how the risk level of the spread of COVID-19 with remote sensing data is, we analyze the level of vulnerability,” said Acting Head of the Research Center for Remote Sensing Applications BRIN Aviation and Space Research Organization M Rokhis Khomarudin in a Webinar Talk to Scientists: Research and Innovation for Disaster-Resilient Indonesia in Jakarta, Thursday (7/10/2021).

BRIN analyzes the level of vulnerability and risk based on the distribution of settlements and the distribution of infrastructure combined with data on the number of COVID-19 sufferers.

The platform was appreciated by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP), and its methods have been taught to Association of Southeast Asian Nations countries (UNESCAP). ASEAN).

LAPAN Hub COVID-19 is a web portal for remote sensing applications and Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) for analysis of potential COVID-19 risks in an area.

The potential risk of COVID-19 is determined from its three forming parameters, namely the threat (hazard), vulnerability (vulnerability) and capacity (capacity).

The data used in the analysis of the potential risk of COVID-19 is remote sensing satellite data acquired by the BRIN Remote Sensing Earth Station and other related data.

So far, what is available is the distribution of COVID-19 risk for the DKI Jakarta, Greater Jakarta (Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Tangerang, Bekasi) areas, Bandung City and Surabaya City, as well as the distribution of vulnerability levels throughout Indonesia.

Meanwhile, non-remote sensing data used include daily COVID-19 data per sub-district for DKI Jakarta, Greater Jakarta, Bandung City, and Surabaya City, distribution maps of referral hospitals in Indonesia, maps of distribution of roads in Indonesia, and maps of the distribution of buildings in Indonesia. Indonesia.
