2002, O'Hare, P. T., O'Hare, G. M. P. (Greg M. P.), Lowen, T. D.

This paper introduces the Where You Are (WAY) system, a simple, yet effective application for assisting mobile users in the performance of a variety of routine tasks. The WAY system supports the mobile citizen in the location, tracking and rendezvousing with a variety of moving entities. The WAY sustem seeks to provide such support by deploying a rich collection of appropriate technologies including mobile agent based technologies, Geographic Information Systems and context aware mobile computing. System functionality is delivered through a collection of mobile lightweight intentional agents, which take cognizance of the memory and processing restriction of Personal Digital Assistants.
