Abstract : M-Urgency is a public safety system that redefines the way an emergency call is made to the public safety services such as 911. It enables mobile users to stream live video and audio feed from their Smartphone to the local Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) along with real time location information and other contextual information. In this paper, we present our effort to design and implement a distributed M-Urgency system so as to make the same more efficient and scalable. Our main focus is on (1) handling load balancing of the incoming calls within the servers of the distributed architecture, (2) and handling the case of failures of servers within the same. Simulation of the distributed system and our proposed algorithm for load balancing showed promising results and our approach was also able to handle failures and minimize its impact.
