Mobile system devised to show routes to safety in case of disaster
Mitsubishi Electric Corp, NTT DoCoMo Inc and Pasco Corp said Monday they have jointly developed a technology to provide cellphones and other mobile terminals with three-dimensional, real-time information on routes for escape to safety in the case of natural disasters such as earthquakes.
