In this study, we implemented an Internet of Things (IoT) evacuation support system using beacons that supports evacuees during disasters. This system realized quick and accurate registration of safety information and management of evacuation centers without requiring special equipment by using a mobile device such as a smartphone and a beacon. Additionally, through safety information registration, this system also supports vulnerable people such as the elderly and children by implementing a

Safety information registered at evacuation centers is collected into a regional disaster prevention information/safety information management system managed by the emergency response headquarters. Furthermore, this system also provides regional information and disaster prevention information during normal use. To evaluate the IoT evacuation support system, we evaluated the system usability scale and the operability, relevance, and effectiveness of each function and many of the functions received high evaluation scores.
