TODAY’S PATENT – SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR MIGRATING AGENTS BETWEEN MOBILE DEVICES
The present invention is a method for migrating agents between mobile devices. The present invention was invented by Peterson; Robert W. (Plano, TX), Gerard; Mark (Plano, TX). The patent was issued on 24TH Feb 2015. The patent number of this invention is USRE49003E1.
the mobile devices can be configured to receive and support mobile agents for performing various tasks. Today, there is an increase in low-power microelectronics, sensors, etc. the user can choose to download and start using an intelligent agent-based software application to the mobile device to achieve a specific goal for the user. There is a method to apply a agent to a mobile device comprising a region of interest, the agent application may be configured to execute on at least one mobile device within a region of interest.
For example- point-to-point communication within a region of interest can help to promote direct, expedient exchange of information between agents. When an agent detects that its host device has left the ROI, it may terminate the agent. An agent’s motivation to stay within a specified ROI, e.g. by moving or copying itself to other agents, allows the device to free up resources acquired by the agent after a power cycle or once the device leaves the ROI boundary.
