Abstract

The mobile agents area represents an emerging technology that extends the distributed computing mechanisms and shows a high potential of applicability. However, the problem of reliable communications among mobile agents persists. In this paper a practical solution for reliable communication among mobile agents is described and its characteristics and limitations are discussed. The suggested approach is implemented in the TeleCARE platform for elderly care.
