Abstract This paper explores geographical location awareness to support software agent mobility in ad hoc networks. The idea is to evaluate the concept of opportunistic communication to perform agent migration and mobility among nodes (handover), in an infrastructureless vehicular ad-hoc network (VANET). The application of this idea can support a number of applications, and one of particular interest is a “virtual sensor network” composed of software agents that implement missions in the form of sensing services, which use the available resources provided by the physical nodes, i.e. physical sensor devices, computing platforms and communication devices. A case study is presented together with simulations results to assess the efficiency of the proposed approach.
