Building fire is a common disaster happening in our daily life that causes unfortunate casualties and deaths. Successfully escaping from fire depends on the design of evacuation route and time, as most of the damage of fire is caused due to lack of evacuation equipments or poor design of the emergency route. In this research work, we designed a hybrid building fire evacuation system (HBFES) on a mobile phone using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) techniques and Cloud Computing. The system will be implemented at Tamkang University on Lanyang campus. Several existing computer or mobile phone applications, namely Viewpoint Calculator, Path planner, and MobiX3D viewer will be used on the system to rapidly calculate reliable evacuation routes when building fire takes place.
