Abstract

At the time of a catastrophic calamity in which a telecom infrastructure receives a serious damage, the structure which shares information electronically and carries it simply by the help is useful. RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification Tag) which is one of the ubiquitous devices is a device which enables exchange of electronic data locally and can be utilized as data storage in the information exchange at the time of a disaster. This paper describes the research-and-development result about disaster prevention application of RFID in the Disaster Management and Mitigation Group.
