A Resilient and Energy-Saving Incentive System for Resource Sharing in MANETs

Despite of all progress in terms of computational power, communication bandwidth, and feature richness, limited battery capacity is the major bottleneck for using the resources of mobile devices in innovative distributed applications. Incentives are required for motivating a user to spend energy on behalf of other users and it must be ensured that providing these incentives neither consumes much energy by itself nor allows for free-riding and other types of fraud. In this paper, the authors present a novel incentive system that is tailored to the application scenario of energy-aware resource-sharing between mobile devices.
