Nowadays, a lot of people die or are injured due to sudden disasters. In these disasters, it is important to discover them early and evacuate people quickly. To cope with these problems, we are developing ERESS (Emergency Rescue Evacuation Support System). Mobile terminals with this system exchange their information that associate with their sensors among(More)
Disastrous accidents (fires, earthquakes, chemical releases, terrorist attacks, indiscriminate gun-shootings, etc.) in local area (urban cities, residential buildings, department stores, etc.) usually result in tragic consequences for people and environments. Such accidents have clearly shown that the necessity for reliable systems supporting evacuation is(More)
Vast number of victims have damaged and died due to a lot of large-scale disasters (earthquake, fire, and terrorism, etc.) up to the present time. In disasters that most victims become panic, two matters are necessary to evacuate efficiently. The first is to estimate the location of the disaster occurrence. The second is to construct the evacuation support(More)
Previously, the authors have proposed the Emergency Evacuation Support System (ERESS) for reducing disaster damage. The ERESS runs under Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANET) and primarily aims to reduce the number of victims in panic-type disasters. This system uses ERESS Mobile Terminals (EMT) which are mobile terminals assuming smartphones and tablets. EMT is(More)

The authors have proposed the Emergency Rescue Evacuation Support System (ERESS) for reducing human damage at disasters. The ERESS primarily intended to reduce the number of victims in panic-type disasters (e. g., fire, terrorism) and works under mobile ad-hoc networks (MANET). This system uses ERESS Mobile Terminals (EMTs) like smart phones and tablets.(More)
