Abstract

Location-based mobile commerce incorporates location-aware technologies, wire-free connectivity, and locationalized Web-based services to support the processing of location-referent transactions. In order to provide usable transaction processing services to mobile consumers, location-referent transactions require timely resolution of queries bearing transaction-related locational criteria. This research evaluates Wyse’s location-aware method of resolving these queries. Results obtained in simulated mobile commerce circumstances (1) reveal the query resolution behavior of the location-aware method, (2) confirm the method’s potential to improve the timeliness of transactional support provided to mobile consumers, and (3) identify the method-related adjustments required to maintain optimal levels of query resolution performance. The article also proposes and provides a preliminary evaluation of a heuristic that may be used in efficiently determining the method-related adjustments needed in order to maximize query resolution performance.
