Mobile intermediaries supporting information sharing between mobile users

Mobile intermediaries supporting information sharing between mobile users
Mobile intermediaries supporting information sharing between mobile users
We introduce the notion of a mobile intermediary, called shadow, which is a mobile agent located in the infrastructure, interacting with complex applications on behalf of mobile users. Due to intermittent connectivity, multiple shadow may simultaneously exist. In this paper, we introduce a protocol capable of coordinating these shadows and we present an abstraction layer, hiding away communication and coordination details, which offers a substrate to build distributed applications across mobile devices and fixed infrastructure.

Abstract

We introduce the notion of a mobile intermediary, called shadow, which is a mobile agent located in the infrastructure, interacting with complex applications on behalf of mobile users. Due to intermittent connectivity, multiple shadow may simultaneously exist. In this paper, we introduce a protocol capable of coordinating these shadows and we present an abstraction layer, hiding away communication and coordination details, which offers a substrate to build distributed applications across mobile devices and fixed infrastructure.
