Abstract

Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems have traditionally used text-based Human Machine Interfaces (HMI). We propose a system which integrates multimedia information in SCADA systems in order to improve and support the telecontrol tasks. This system has been deployed in a real environment and we have obtained satisfactory results. Then, we also propose an improvement for this system. This improvement allows telecontrol operators to use the system without needing any experience with computers and also it allows an automatic surveillance of the elements in the utility environment. The development of this improved system is accomplished by using the main advantages of embedded and multi-agent system technologies.
