Abstract:

Children, the elderly, and people with disabilities are vulnerable groups who are unable to identify and express their needs. Also, if the needs of this group of people are identified, their access to the most up-to-date information and solutions to meet identified needs will be difficult, time-consuming and costly. For this purpose, the Internet of Things (IoT) and selective dissemination of information (SDI) are used in this paper to automate steps from needs identification to providing up-to-date information and solutions to address identified needs. The proposed method has been tested on children with the subject of English language teaching. In this implementation, the childrens education network graph created by Internet of Things was analysed. Childrens educational needs were identified and after transforming the needs into keywords, they were sent to the selective dissemination of information system. Then, using the selective dissemination of information system, solutions based on the educational needs of each child were sent to their parents. The results showed the high efficiency of the proposed method.

Keywords:

Internet of Things, Information Systems, Selective Dissemination of Information, Vulnerable Groups.
