Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We describe a methodology which enables development of flexible and reusable mobile agent applications for location aware indoor environments. The methodology, which is named "Workflow-awareness model" (WFA), is based on a concept where a pair of mobile agents cooperate to perform a given task to realize separation of concerns for software maintenance. The paper outlines the methodology, and shows how the concepts work in the prototype environment. Usefulness of this methodology concerning its efficiency and software engineering aspects are analyzed.
