mobile agents ()

Projects

.net Mobile Agents
Mobile agents are capable of enhancing distributed applications due to their inherent characteristics, such as code and state mobility, network awareness, intelligence, and so on. The predominant development language of mobile agent systems is Java due to its platform independence and sandbox...
Mobile Agents in Ad-hoc routing
Recent advances in technology provided the ground for highly dynamic, mobile, infrastructure-less networks, namely, ad-hoc networks. Despite their enormous benefits, the full potential cannot be reached unless certain issues are resolved.
PEDFLOW
The PEDFLOW (PEDestrian FLOW) project is concerned with the development of a microscopic model of pedestrian movement in a congested urban environment. Autonomous agent technology is utilised to represent each pedestrian as an agent capable of making its own decisions based upon a part of the...
