Abstract

For some time, we have been working toward the Realization of a Safe and Secure Society using ICT in Shiojiri-City, Nagano Prefecture. This is a project comprised of two phases: information gathering, and dissemination of information. For information gathering, we are developing systems to confirm the whereabouts of children and the elderly, who are vulnerable in disasters, and systems to gather information on the situation in mountainous regions, rivers etc. For dissemination of information, we are developing systems using broadcast technology for disseminating information to residents, such as disaster information and evacuation warnings derived from the gathered information. This presentation will describe the project goals, the background of the project thus far, and an overview of the developed system. The current situation and plans for the future will also be discussed.
