In this paper, we explore an architecture, called \emph{K-Trek}, that enables mobile users to \emph{travel across knowledge} distributed over large geographical areas (ranging from large public buildings to national parks). Our aim is to provide, distribute, and enrich the environment with location-sensitive information for use by agents on board mobile and static devices. Local interactions among K-Trek devices and the distribution of data in the larger environment follow some typical peer-to-peer patterns and techniques. We introduce the architecture, discuss some of its potential knowledge management applications, and present a few experimental results obtained by means of simulation

### K-Trek: a peer-to-peer approach to distribute knowledge in large environments

#### Abstract

In this paper, we explore an architecture, called \emph{K-Trek}, that enables mobile users to \emph{travel across knowledge} distributed over large geographical areas (ranging from large public buildings to national parks). Our aim is to provide, distribute, and enrich the environment with location-sensitive information for use by agents on board mobile and static devices. Local interactions among K-Trek devices and the distribution of data in the larger environment follow some typical peer-to-peer patterns and techniques. We introduce the architecture, discuss some of its potential knowledge management applications, and present a few experimental results obtained by means of simulation
