Abstract

We present a prototype of robust evacuation support systems that use mobile agents to move a database server and to minimize the necessity of redundant configurations. We have conducted a project for evacuation support systems. In order to provide versatility in the system, we have employed Google Maps API to construct evacuation routes. The previous system has two problems. One of them is the existence of a single point of failure. When one of the database servers or application servers of the system breaks down, the whole system stops functioning. In order to solve this problem, we propose a system using mobile agents to remove the single point of failure. In the current system, we not only transfer data to another server but also make the servers move as mobile agents so that we do not need to use any cloud servers such as AWS and GitHub. In this paper, we describe the design and implementation of our server agent, and report experiences and observations we have found during the experiments.
