Abstract: The mobile agent (MA) technology has been widely applied in distributed applications. However, since mobile agents are highly autonomous, coordinating the their behaviours is hard. We concentrate on the mutual exclusion issue in this paper and propose an algorithm for achieving mutex among mobile agents. In contrast to the existing algorithms for traditional distributed processes, the proposed algorithm does not require MAs to have a pre-knowledge about other competitors, nor the total number of them. MAs can join/leave the competition session freely. The algorithm performance is also evaluated through simulations.
