This paper introduces the Where Are You (WAY) system, a simple, yet effective application for assisting mobile users in the performance of a variety of routine tasks. The WAY system supports the mobile citizen in the location, tracking and rendezvousing with a variety of moving entities. The WAY system seeks to provide such support by deploying a rich collection of appropriate technologies including mobile agent based technologies, Geographic Information Systems and context aware mobile computing. System functionality is delivered through a collection of mobile lightweight intentional agents, which take cognizance of the memory and processing restriction of Personal Digital Assistants.
