Established on the Intel Multi-Core Embedded platform, using 802.11 Wireless Network protocols as the communication medium, combining with Radio Frequency-Communication and Ultrasonic Ranging, imple-ment a mobile terminal system in an intellectualized building. It can provide its holder such functions: 1) Accurate Positioning 2) Intelligent Navigation 3) Video Monitoring 4) Wireless Communication. The inno-vative point for this paper is to apply the multi-core computing on the embedded system to promote its com-puting speed and give a real-time performance and apply this system into the indoor environment for the purpose of emergent event or rescuing.
