We performed a demonstration of Relay-by-Smartphone® assuming a situation for collecting information of disaster victims outside of communication range, and it was successful in gathering disaster information (name and face photograph of victims) in emergency response headquarters at San Remigio, Cebu, Philippines on Aug. 2nd, 2016. The Relay-by-Smartphone® technique has been developed by our laboratory.

Through the questionnaire of this demonstration and Relay-by-Smartphone®, it has been confirmed that the Relay-by-Smartphone® technique can help gather information, indicating its usefulness in disaster situations. Also, many answers of the questionnaire suggested possibilities for its use in daily life.

Due to their notable contributions, the Certificate of Appreciation was given by the Municipal Mayor of San Remigio to Prof. Nei Kato, Assoc. Prof. Hiroki Nishiyama, Daiki Murayama (M2), Naoki Miyashita (M2), Naoto Yamada (M2), Hiroaki Takagi (M1), and Yuki Takahashi (M1).
