Proceedings of the 9th International Workshop on Future Trends of Distributed Computing Systems IEEE 2003 pp 159 165 Looking for a Common View for Mobile Worlds Maria Gradinariu Michel Raynal IRISA INRIA CNRS Universite Rennes 1 35000 Rennes France Abstract This paper considers central issues of distributed computing in a mobile environment Its aim is to light on the first brick of a common view for mobile systems We pool together mobile systems and analyze them from different angles including architecture and computability aspects We show that mobile systems i e cellular systems ad hoc networks peer to peer systems virtual reality systems or cooperative robotics are basically confronted with the same problems hence it is useless to maintain the actual misleading barriers Due to important similarities between the different mobile systems we claim that the next logical step in building a common view is to design a model which conceptually should unify them by providing an abstract description of the parameters which distinguish these systems from classic distributed systems Moreover in the new model the fundamental problems of distributed computing i e k mutual exclusion leader election or group communication should find appropriate specifications 1 Introduction The distributed computing area includes henceforth mobile systems i e cellular and ad hoc networks peerto peer systems mobile virtual reality and cooperative robotics The classic models and solutions are not adapted to mobile worlds hence new models new problems and obviously new solutions should be designed This paper advocates for the creation of a common view for mobile worlds based on the similarities between them In the sequel we present in an informal manner the main characteristics of what are usually referred as mobile systems then we describe the elements on which should be based the design of a mobile system model and finally present in an exhaustive manner the models proposed so far in the mobile
