Abstract

This article presents a location-based multimedia content delivery system (LMCDS) for monitoring purposes, which incorporates media processing with a decision support system and positioning techniques for providing the appropriate content to the most suitable users, in respect to user profile and location, for monitoring purposes. This system is based on agent technology (Hagen & Magendanz, 1998) and aims to promote the social welfare, by increasing the overall situation awareness and efficiency in emergency cases and in areas of high importance. Such a system can be exploited in many operational (public or commercial) environments and offers increased security at a low cost.
