In this chapter, we will discuss mobile agent coordination, starting with some general considerations about coordination and mobility.By means of a case study, we compare some coordination models and point out that fully uncoupled models better suit dynamic scenarios such as those involving mobility. Therefore, we then focus mainly on uncoupled coordination models (Linda-like models), surveying some proposed coordination systems in literature and evaluating them with regard to some chosen classification criteria. Finally, the chapter proposes an innovative approach to mobile agent coordination, which exploits the powerful concept of roles in multi-agent systems.

Abstract

In this chapter, we will discuss mobile agent coordination, starting with some general considerations about coordination and mobility.By means of a case study, we compare some coordination models and point out that fully uncoupled models better suit dynamic scenarios such as those involving mobility. Therefore, we then focus mainly on uncoupled coordination models (Linda-like models), surveying some proposed coordination systems in literature and evaluating them with regard to some chosen classification criteria. Finally, the chapter proposes an innovative approach to mobile agent coordination, which exploits the powerful concept of roles in multi-agent systems.
