We propose an emergency rescue support communication system to quickly rescue passenger ships, such as large cruise ships, when a ship sinks or a disaster such as a fire occurs. A beacon is installed in the inside of the vessel, and the position and the status of the passenger are detected in real time through the Bluetooth communication in the mobile terminal carried by the passenger and transmitted to the server. When an emergency occurs, the server sends information on the passenger to the rescue agency, informs the passenger of the emergency, and guides evacuation. As a result of simulations using the designed system, it was confirmed that the server immediately notifies all terminals when an emergency occurred in more than half of the area. This system, which detects the accident in real time and notifies all terminals in the vessel, unlike the existing system that notifies the position of the accident vessel or simply the position of the passenger in the vessel, will be helpful for the rapid evacuation and rescue of the passenger.
