    Abstract

    As mobile computing becomes common, the battery issue of mobile computing devices has become increasingly notable. To this end, research and development of various power-conservation devices and methods are actively taking place. However, the conventional method of extending the battery life through power-conservation can never prevent the unintentional shutdowns of applications due to the dead battery. This research aims to realize the evacuation of applications on a mobile computing device to another device before the battery runs out by creating the application as a mobile agent. Particularly, by introducing the concept of the Crisis Management Center, dynamic and smooth evacuation of multiple application agents will become possible. This paper explains and verifies the effectiveness of the EASTER (Escape Agent System from dying batTERy), a system developed for the purpose of recovering the applications when a battery is running out through the use of mobile agent system.
