DOST, DILG to discuss possible adaptation of useful studies
by PNA release

The Department of Science and Technology will meet with the Department of the Interior and Local Government for possible research adaptation by the latter.

“We will have a convergence meeting with the DILG, because the PCIEERD (Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development) has many researches that would be useful for the them,” DOST Sec. Fortunato dela Peña said.

Among these researches and technologies, he said, is on rapid charging.

Called CharM (Charging in Minutes), this research aims to develop a fast-charging system that could boost electric tricycles and electric vehicles the same way as the conventional gasoline stations. The goal is to make the e-vehicles replenish energy in their storage tank as soon as possible.

CharM has been adapted in Isabela, and would also be piloted in Visayas and Mindanao, dela Pena added.

“We also have technologies for traffic management, disaster risk reduction, and those that the DILG could use in relation to smart cities,” he said.

PCIEERD has developed the LocalSim (local traffic simulator), a microscopic traffic simulation software designed for road and traffic engineers of local government as a decision support system for traffic simulation and management.

This can incorporate the Filipino driving behavior in the system and create model local traffic improvement alternatives through evidence-based traffic analysis and evaluation of alternative scheme.

Usher (Structural Health Monitoring System), on the other hand, is a 24/7 system for buildings and bridges which could help enable economical and hassle-free compliance. It provides sensors to assess building damage immediately after an earthquake, and helps prevent casualties by providing periodic building occupancy suitability and safety parameters.

The DOST-attached agency also offers “Fire Check,” which produces research-based information to aid emergency responders and officials, as well as strategic planners and policymakers in fire disaster assessment and risk evaluation.

This is done using fire hazard maps, 3D maps of high-risk communities, fire spread modeling and simulation, neighborhood evacuation plans, and fire risk reduction management or investment plans.

Petrography, meanwhile, is for concrete quality assessment for existing infrastructure. According to PCIEERD, petrography aims to conduct an in-depth analysis and assessment on the health of concrete used in the identified lifeline infrastructure under the Metro Manila Oplan Yakal Plus, the contingency plan of the Metro Manila Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council.
