This work describes the development of the interactive, distributed,
and adaptable live streaming system StrIMA (Streaming System
for Interactive Mobile Applications). This system was developed in
the context of the SAMT project (information system from the Saarland
for mobile tourists), with which the German Research Center for
Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) was entrusted by the Ministry of Economics
of the Saarland.
The project plans to develop a regional information
system for tourists, who are travelling on foot or by bicycle.
As a mobile terminal for tourists, a mobile phone or a Smartphone
offers its services. Due to the limited resources of todays mobile
phones the processing of multimedia applications of which an information
system consists runs on distant servers.
