M-Urgency is a public safety system that (1) redefines how emergency calls are made to a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) like the 911 system and (2) is designed to be context-aware of the situation in which it is used. M-Urgency enables mobile users to stream live audio and video from their devices to local PSAP along with the audio stream, the real time location and the relevant context information, enabling appropriate and prompt service.
Deployed today on the University of Maryland”s campus – a community of 43,000 people with its own PSAP – the M-Urgency system enables a caller to give the PSAP operator not only her ID and location but also an audio and a video stream from her phone that can be forwarded by the operator to the dispatched first responder.
