Examples of Creating New Value in the Field of Disaster Prevention (Society 5.0)

New value in the field of disaster prevention

In Society 5.0, new value can be generated in the following ways: through AI analysis of big data consisting of diverse information, such as observations of disaster-affected areas by satellite, by terrestrial weather radar, or by drones, damage information based on structural sensors, and road-damage information from automobiles.

・Provide each and every person with shelter and relief information via individual smartphones and other devices based on disaster conditions and move people safely to shelters

・Discover victims immediately through assist suits, rescue robots, etc. and rescue them from disaster-affected buildings quickly

・Perform optimal delivery of relief materials through drones, self-driving delivery vehicles, etc.

For society on the whole, these solutions can help reduce damage and achieve an early recovery.
