With the emergence of ubiquitous resource infinite computing, the opportunity arises to significantly enhance on-demand resource availability, particularly for under-connected areas, extreme environments and distress situations. To this end, the authors propose a new concept, termed PlanetCloud, that enables the provisioning of the right, otherwise idle, fixed and mobile resources to effect ubiquitous computing clouds. PlanetCloud utilizes their new opt-in, dynamic spatio-temporal resource calendaring mechanism that aims at providing a dynamic real-time resource scheduling and tracking system.
