Mobile computing
September 1993 (vol. 26 no. 9)
pp. 81-82

The problems, limitations, and potential advantages of mobile computing systems are discussed. It is suggested that the constraints violate many of the assumptions upon which today's distributed systems are based. A key requirement of mobile computing systems will be the ability to access critical data regardless of location, which implies interdependence between the elements of a mobile computing system. The Coda file system, which is an effort to provide transparency of environment to mobile computing systems, is reviewed.
