Abstract

A mobile host has small memory, relatively slow processor, low power batteries, and communicate over low bandwidth wireless communication links. Existing mutual exclusion algorithms for distributed systems are not enough for mobile systems because of several limitations. In this study, a mutual exclusion algorithm that is more suitable for mobile computer systems is developed. The algorithm tends to minimize the number of messages needed to be transmitted in the system, by reducing the number of sites involved in the mutual exclusion decision, and reducing the amount of storage needed at different sites of the system.
