Abstract

These days, the portable computers are capable of connecting to network by wireless communication while the user moving. Users can enjoy this computer's ability and use some services on computer network at any place and at any time. This new style of computer usage is named `Mobile Computing'. In Mobile Computing environment, there are some problems which are caused by using wireless interfaces, such as disconnection and incapability of connecting to the network. Moreover, it is likely that most users operate not only with their portable computers but also with other computers at their office, their home and so on. In this paper, we discuss the agent platform which considers these features of mobile computing. This platform is designed in order to cover the shortages wireless communication and to provide a platform for agents that support user mobility.
