VIMY Multi system

Building on work begun in 2007, the research program aims to develop a multisystem driven by an artificial intelligence (AI) capability. The latter, named VIMY Multisystem, in turn uses drones, robotics and other automated systems to manage multiple casualties in the event of disasters, such as chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or explosive (CBRNE) attacks.
Also known as VIMY, the multi-system is named after a First World War battle that helped forge Canada's identity as a sovereign nation.
Vimy is a field-deployable critical care multisystem capable of managing multiple casualties. It is based on an artificial intelligence capability consisting mainly of sensors, data acquisition systems, automated interactive systems and algorithms to aid decision-making and machine learning.
Since it is designed for any disaster, including a CBRNE event, VIMY will significantly reduce the burden on the clinician and enable a more robust medical response. In particular, it will take on tasks such as physiological monitoring and triage, propose a differential diagnosis and initiate certain treatments. It will also be able to provide safety information, generate statistics and support other decisions (e.g. protective measures, decontamination, extraction routes, work-rest cycles). The system will facilitate medical research, thanks to the data generated by its archiving function.
