Advanced Wireless Technology for Disaster Management System Framework Development

M.S.I. M.Zin, A. A.M.Isa, M.S. M.Isa


This paper describes the development concept of an integrated disaster management system based on advanced wireless communication technology. The aim of the system is to prepare, respond, recover and reduce the risk of a disaster comprehensively by employing the latest technology in wireless communication. The system comprises five main components; Wireless Monitoring and Alert, Resilient Wireless Mesh Network, Energy Harvesting, Mobile Healthcare and Evacuation Management System. The development of a highly reliable and comprehensive disaster management system enables first-hand information to be instantaneously analyzed and acted upon by the most significant people to facilitate the best actions to be taken and relayed to the people in charge.
