This study proposes a distributed multi-agent system combining radio-frequency identification press technology with an ontology for special-education students in support of dynamic campus-safety management. Safety management on campus typically involves relevant supporting measures and manuals, but serious safety-related incidents continue to take place on campuses. The goal of campus security should be to identify an incident and resolve it effectively and in real time before the incident evolves into an actual crisis. Our purpose here is to improve the traceability of students involving in campus activities—that is, to identify students’ whereabouts throughout the entire school day. When an incident occurs, our system will notify the relevant parties immediately. In the present study, the agents real-time event processing increases their situational awareness and reduces the likelihood and the severity of unwanted outcomes. Basically, in this paper, we aim to demonstrate the feasibility and applicability of utilizing agent-based technologies to the special-education students.
