Title (EN) APPARATUS HAVING AN EMERGENCY ALERT FUNCTION CAPABLE OF DETECTING REDUNDANT NOTIFICATIONS
(FR) APPAREIL A FONCTION D'ALERTE D'URGENCE CAPABLE DE DETECTER DES NOTIFICATIONS REDONDANTES
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus (20) provides an emergency alert function that detects redundant notifications of emergency events. According to an exemplary embodiment, the apparatus (20) includes a signal receiving element (21) operative to receive first emergency alert signals representing a first notification of a first emergency event and second emergency alert signals representing a second notification of a second emergency event. A processor (27) enables an alert output responsive to the first emergency alert signals. The processor (27) suppresses the alert output responsive to the second emergency alert signals if at least two predetermined conditions are satisfied. The at least two predetermined conditions include the first emergency event being a same type of event as the second emergency event, and the first emergency event having an expiration time within a predetermined time period before or after an expiration time of the second emergency event.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un appareil (20) présentant une fonction d'alerte d'urgence capable de détecter les messages d'alerte redondants concernant des dangers imminents. Dans une exécution, l'appareil (20) comporte un récepteur (21) recevant de premiers signaux représentant une première notification d'un premier danger imminent, et de deuxièmes signaux représentant une deuxième notification d'un deuxième danger imminent. Un processeur (27) émet normalement une alarme en réponse aux premiers signaux, mais supprime l'alarme en réponse aux premiers signaux, si au moins deux conditions prédéterminées sont satisfaites: (i) que le premier événement soit de même nature que le deuxième, et (ii) que le premier événement présente un temps d'expiration tombant dans une période prédéterminée soit avant soit après le temps d'expiration du deuxième événement.
