Design of a Cooperative Working Environment for Mobile Devices
GEMMA is a cooperative control system developed to manage and coordinate a fleet of mobile resources (boats, planes, employers, etc) dedicated to maintain clean coastal and beach waters in the Balearic Islands. All the process is supervised by a control center in several workstations. In addition, a cooperative working environment was designed and developed for a group of mobile devices. In this article we present a project extension that involves the control tasks of mobile computers. Using portable computers, PDA and mobile phones, controllers can develop their control tasks supervising the coastal state and be online with all the system and resources in the Gemma project. All the communication processes are established by TCP-IP connections via GPRS/UMTS.
