Project Introduction


This project addresses the impact of climate change on cities and urbanization, with particular relevance to the priority area of improving environmental resilience and, more specifically, in disaster mitigation.


  • Develop a Software Defined System architecture blueprint for disaster mitigation, crisis communication, and emergency management that can monitor and report disaster events in near real-time.
  • Investigate programmability aspects of IoTs technologies, storage, networking, and edge/cloud computing platforms.
  • Conduct field testing of potential use cases using NICT’s existing testbeds such as JGN-X, Starbed, and JOSE.
  • Organise workshops with ASEAN members to disseminate R&D results.
  • Dialogue with PRAGMA (NSF, US), CENTRA (NSF, US), and CECEA (Taiwan) on similar R&D challenges to accelerate project activities.
