Abstract

Mobile computing is characterized by dynamic change to the operational environment; examples of this include: i) changes in environmental context, such as geographic location or network type (e.g. moving from an infrastructure wireless network to an ad hoc wireless network); ii) resource fluctuation e.g. available battery power or network bandwidth; or iii) change in network connectivity. In the face of such change, mobile systems must dynamically adapt their behavior, often to continue operating or to maintain the required levels of service.
