Dynamic Mobile Cloud Computing: Ad Hoc and Opportunistic Job Sharing
Despite increasing usage of mobile computing, exploiting its full potential is difficult due to problems such as resource sparseness. In this paper, the authors explore the feasibility of a mobile cloud computing framework to use local resources to solve these problems. The framework aims to determine a priori the usefulness of sharing workload at runtime. The results of experiments conducted in Bluetooth transmission and an initial prototype are also presented. Furthermore, they discuss a preliminary analytical model to determine whether or not a speedup will be possible in offloading.
