Abstract

During recent years, rises in terrorist attacks and armed conflicts have increased the demand for autonomous devices. The need for devices with the ability to detect toxic gases, to be fire resistant and to multifunction has increased. We propose a concept of two such devices with the ability to comfortably and remotely control such devices and even with an autonomous control in remote areas inside the buildings. The localization by WiFi is used to locate a position where the GPS signal is not well presented. The ability to locate a mobile device by a wireless network is a well known possibility. Position information tools are currently used in many current areas. The main area of interest is in the use of locating and tracking users of a mobile information system to prebuffer large amounts of data to them before usage. All large data files are stored as artifacts along with its position information in a building or a larger area. The accessing of prebuffered data on mobile devices can highly improve response time needed to view large multimedia data. This fact can help with the design of new full scale applications for mobile devices.
