For protection during a disaster, an effective localization and positioning system is a vital disaster. With the use of mobile devices, locating individuals during a disaster is becoming easy with Cell/RIF/Bluetooth. The mobile device-enabled Augmented Reality(AR) in conjunction with the Internet of Things(IoT) is changing the face of disaster management. AR and IoT technologies are active topics in emergency and disaster response. They both are powerful technologies in the era of modernization. They are developing a new dimension with the capabilities to attach and utilize digital information and data from physical devices. With the use of these technologies, you can benefit your enterprises by modernizing how you manage personal and asset deployment.
