We explain basic features of an emerging area called Intelligent Environments. We give a short overview on how it has developed, what is the current state of the art and what are the challenges laying ahead. The aim of the article is to make aware the Computer Science community of this new development, the differences with previous dominant paradigms and(More)

This paper presents a world model for location-aware and user-aware services in ubiquitous computing environments. It can be dynamically organized like a tree based on geographical containment, such as user-room-floor-building, and each node in the tree can be constructed as an executable software component. The model is unique to existing approaches(More)
This paper presents a mobile agent-based framework for ambient intelligence. The goal of the infrastructure is to provide people, places, and objects with computational functionalities to support and annotate them. Using locationtracking systems the infrastructure can navigate Java-based mobile agents to stationary or mobile computers near the entities and(More)
This paper presents a framework for active networks. The framework is unique among other existing active networks in being based on mobile agents. It allows protocols to be implemented within mobile agents and dynamically deployed at end systems. Moreover, it can dispatch networked applications, including client/server programs built on TCP/IP, to remote(More)
We present a framework for testing applications for mobile computing devices. When a device is moved into and attached to a new network, the proper functioning of applications running on the device often depends on the resources and services provided locally in the current network. This framework provides an application-level emulator for mobile computing(More)
MobiDoc is a framework for building mobile compound documents, where the compound document can be dynamically composed of mobile agents and can migrate itself over a network as a whole, with all its embedded agents. The key of this framework is that it builds a hierarchical mobile agent system that enables multiple mobile agents to be combined into a single(More)
This paper presents a new framework for constructing mobile agents. The framework introduces the notion of agent hierarchy and inter-agent migration and thus allows a group of mobile agents to be dynamically assembled into a single mobile agent. It provides a powerful method to construct a distributed application, in particular a large-scale mobile(More)

This paper presents a framework for the building of context-aware applications in ubiquitous and mobile computing settings. The framework provides people, places, and things with computational functionalities to support and annotate them. It is unique among existing systems because the functionalities are implemented by mobile agents. Using(More)
