Agents in personal mobility

"Agents in personal mobility" de STEFANO CAMPADELLO e KIMMO RAATIKAINEN.

"Personal mobility features, that is the ability of a user to access his or her personalized telecommunication services at any terminal, are of great importance to answer to the challenge of
providing computing and communication services anywhere and anytime in the disconnected world. Agent technology is a new and emerging software solution that can improve the design and
implementation of systems supporting nomadic users. We present a framework for using mobile and intelligent agents to implement personal mobility features. Our prototype implementation clearly demonstrates advantages of agent-based solutions when compared to IN-based and to DPEbased implementations".
