Abstract

Mobile computing technology is now rapidly developing in the area of health care service requiring the use of mobile access to information at remote locations. Mobile information transmission systems distribute data to and from remote basis with information sent back and forth using client/server architecture through any wireless communication media. As such, decision-making for any application domain could then be based on complete knowledge as events occur. This immediate decision-making at a critical time is of particular importance in the case of accidents and/or disaster. However, many application obstacles within wireless computing are yet to be resolved. One major issue is the speed of data retrieval, which directly affects the performance of mobile database applications and can affect the emergency rescue process. In this paper, we investigate a semantic-based transaction management mechanism for mobile emergency rescue support system. We then develop a prototype system by using the mechanism and evaluate the performance of the system.
