Domain-based proxy for efficient location tracking of mobile agents

Abstract

The provision of location tracking for mobile agents is designed to deliver a message to a moving object in a network. Most tracking methods exploit relay stations that hold location information to forward messages to a target mobile agent. In this paper, we propose an efficient location tracking method for mobile agents using the domain-based proxy as a relay station. The proxy in each domain is dynamically determined when a mobile agent enters a new domain. The proposed method exploits the domain-based moving patterns of mobile agents and minimizes registration and message transfer costs in mobile agent systems.
