Mobile Resource Awareness
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
New types of cellular networks are appearing on the market, such as GPRS and UMTS. In addition to this, an increasing number of places are being equipped with wireless LAN extensions to the Internet. Simultaneously, new mobile devices are becoming available that can perform complex computations based on events from various input devices and/or information sources. The combination of extended network connectivity and new mobile devices creates new opportunities for network computing.
This paper presents a scenario where network enabled applications can interact with mobile devices to create a smart space. The ambition is to create a system where mobile devices can be aware of what resources are present at a specific location. The prototype solution in this paper uses an XML-based protocol and a tuple space architecture as a message passing mechanism.
