    Abstract

    The analysis of the risk of transportation processes shows that transportation of hazardous materials is complex process and causes a risk quite a different than that of a fixed facility. Sustainability of surroundings depends on a safe transportation, especially on the safe transportation of dangerous goods by different auto transport kinds. The aims of our research concern an approach for development of the architecture of decision support system with integrated embedded components for monitoring and evaluation of transportation processes of dangerous goods. Mobile technology provides a potentially convenient and truly ubiquitous platform for detection of the objects and the contextual information such as the location, region awareness, etc. A locationbased reminder application runs on wireless equipments. Reminders can be more helpful when rich contextual information is used to present necessary information at appropriate time moments in appropriate places. Devices sense and interact with their physical environment through sensors. In general terms, any aspect of the device that enables it to sense and interact with its physical environment may be considered as a sensor.
    The combination of web service protocols (e.g. SOAP) with session initialization protocol (SIP) enables P2P accessibility by introducing sensor’s listener and context retriever as programming components in the developing communication architecture of servers and users. We are using an appropriate interface structure (components, scenarios) for service control, and integrate data-mining, knowledge-based techniques for recognizing a concrete situation of the moving object. The integration of distributed information systems and the means of wireless communication systems (i.e., programming components, protocols, sensors, and devices) are needed. The paper describes an approach of designing the architecture of the system that uses wireless technologies for monitoring dynamic objects with implementation of probabilistic methods for evaluation of risk of possible types of scenarios of accident events which can occur in transportation of dangerous goods. Some wireless protocols are used in establishing the object’s geographical coordinates, monitoring and fixing the state behavior of the moving dangerous transportation objects.
