<講演内容 / Speech content>


Our urban community is under earthquake-disaster risk but its readiness is difficult to evaluate. Therefore, like medical checkup of ourselves, countermeasures based on inspections and diagnoses are necessary. For this purpose, we are developing a cyber-physical-system consisting of a city in physical space and a simulator in cyber space, or an “Urban CPS”. We will establish “Data generation process” for collecting, transforming and integrating various data in the community to construct “city model” and also reflecting real situations on the city model by using sensors on buildings. Resilience or the readiness to earthquake disasters will be evaluated through simulations and thus the direction for enhancing the resilience and appropriate measures will be recommended.
