Many mobile applications overcome their device limitations in computational, energy, or data resources by offloading computations to the cloud. In this paper, we consider environments in which computational offloading occurs amongst a set of mobile devices. We call such an environment a mobile device cloud (MDC). In this work, we first highlight the gain in(More)
Despite the increased capabilities of mobile devices, mobile application resource requirements can often transcend what can be accomplished on a single device. This has been addressed through several proposals for efficient computation offloading from mobile devices to remote cloud resources or closely located computing resources known as cloudlets. In this(More)
In this paper, we consider an environment in which computational offoading is adopted amongst mobile devices. We call such an environment a mobile device cloud (MDC). In this work, we highlight via emulation, experimenation and real measurements, the potential gain in computation time and energy consumption that can be achieved by offoading tasks within an(More)
This paper presents a simple reasoned methodology for designing sliding mode controllers (SMCs) for single-input-multi-output (SIMO) control systems. The approach is explicitly based on the assessment of a system total energy, and the realization of a SMC that minimizes that energy. The practical implementation of the proposed approach is exemplified on an(More)
