Emergency mobilER MuliCast Trials
Multicast trial of “Ambulance MobileER” using wearable computer and a mobile router supporting Mobile IPv6 [Jpn]
The proof of opening to the public experiment of the 4th of “Internet ambulance MobileER” in which the Ikoma City fire fighting headquarters was advancing development with Nara Institute of Science and Technology was conducted on October 3. In the proving test function to achieve communications that used the image and the voice from the wearable computer that rescue personnel had installed so far to the doctor of the receiver had been achieved.
The multicast type communication function was achieved as a function newly needed in a practical stage in this experiment, and smooth support functions from the stage where the acceptance hospital was decided were demonstrated.
