Damages on human and physical properties have recently become significant due to natural disasters, such as earthquake and hurricanes, as well as social disasters, such as fire in subway and terrorist attacks using explosive. Notably, as buildings are becoming taller and more complex, demands on countermeasure to multi disasters, such as earthquake, fire, and flooding, are increasing for complex skyscraper facilities. Complex skyscraper facilities are equipped with constant management systems, such as facility management, lighting management, CCTV management, and parking management, as well as event-based emergency management system, such as fire control, flooding control, seismic detection, and wind detection. While part of the information for each system is currently being collected by a central monitoring system in the form of SI (system integration), it is difficult to perform SOP (standard operating procedure)-based integrated control because data protocols for sensors and receivers are different. An integrated system for efficient countermeasure/evacuation in complex skyscraper facilities is currently under development, and this study organizes the roles and scope of system interface for linkage of information among the integrated system, disaster information collection system, analysis system, and countermeasure system. The scope of disaster at this point was limited to earthquake, flooding, and fire. The system interface that is designed by this study is one of core modules for implementing an integrated system, and is to be used to present future directions for development of integrated CPS (Cyber Physical System) in countermeasure to disasters.
