EdgeIoT: Mobile edge computing for the Internet of Things
free download

In order to overcome the scalability problem of the traditional Internet of Things architecture (ie, data streams generated from distributed IoT devices are transmitted to the remote cloud via the Internet for further analysis), this article proposes a novel approach to mobile edge

Mobile computing : technologies for a disconnected society
free download

The term mobile computing is used to describe an array of tech- nologies supporting personal mobility for computer users. Such mobility can take the form of users moving between fixed terminals anywhere in the world or users taking mobile devices with them wherever they move. In both IN THIS ISSUE This issue presents a collection of articles covering innovations in mobile computing . In reviewing the sub- missions for this special issue, it became clear that more technology drivers are on the horizon, in particular em- bedded Web browsers and smartphones. Because

Artificial life techniques for reporting cell planning in mobile computing
free download

This paper discusses the use of genetic algorithm (GA), tabu search (TS), and ant colony algorithm (ACA) to solve the reporting cells planning problem. In the reporting cell location management scheme, some cells in the network are designated as reporting cells; mobile battery life has always been a concern in the wireless communications industry. We would like to avoid the need for frequent recharge of a portable device and the possible limitation in communications and processing capability caused by a depleted energy source. At the

Adaptive service provision in mobile computing environments

It is necessary to reexamine distrbuted transaction processing issues in mobile computing systems to account for characteristics of mobile computers like slow, unreliable communication, disconnected operation and location dependence. This study mainly

Distributed dynamic fault-tolerant channel allocation for mobile computing
free download

E cient allocation of communication channels is critical for the performance of wireless mobile computing systems. The centralized channel allocation algorithms proposed in literature are neither robust, nor scalable. Distributed channel allocation schemes proposed

Mobile trusted computing
