In smart cities, cellular network plays a crucial role to support wireless access for numerous devices anywhere and anytime. The future 5G network aims to build the infrastructure from mobile internet to connected world. Small Cell is one of the most promising technologies of 5G to provide more connections and high data rate. In order to make the best use(More)
As a prominent subcategory of cyber-physical systems, mobile cyber-physical systems could take advantage of widely used mobile devices, such as smartphones, as a convenient and economical platform that facilitates sophisticated and ubiquitous mobile sensing applications between humans and the surrounding physical world. This paper presents Vita, a novel(More)
It is predicted that billions of intelligent devices and networks, such as wireless sensor networks (WSNs), will not be isolated but connected and integrated with computer networks in future Internet of Things (IoT). In order to well maintain those sensor devices, it is often necessary to evolve devices to function correctly by allowing device management(More)
The powerful data storage and data processing abilities of cloud computing (CC) and the ubiquitous data gathering capability of wireless sensor network (WSN) complement each other in CC-WSN integration, which is attracting growing interest from both academia and industry. However, job scheduling for CC integrated with WSN is a critical and unexplored topic.(More)
This article proposes a multidimensional context-aware social network architecture, which aims to provide a mobile ecosystem to enable context awareness in the development and utilization of mobile crowdsensing applications. This mobile ecosystem is constructed to provide context awareness capabilities for different roles (i.e., users or developers) in the(More)
Recently, the arising of cloud computing (CC) concept and explosive growth of mobile applications induce a novel technology, i.e., mobile cloud computing (MCC). By integrating CC into mobile environment, MCC alleviates limitations of mobile devices and proliferates a variety of new fascinating mobile services. The key to enable MCC is to equip mobile users(More)
Mobile social networks (MSNs) have become increasingly popular in supporting many novel applications since emerging in the recent years. Their applications and services are of great interest to service providers, application developers, and users. This paper distinguishes MSNs from conventional social networks and provides a comprehensive survey of MSNs(More)
This paper proposes a semantic-based multi-agent framework to support development of vehicular social network applications. In the programming model of the framework, software platforms of vehicular social network systems can be developed by the collaboration of mobile agents and service (or resident) agents, where resident agents provide application(More)
This paper proposes a novel service-oriented vehicular social networking platform called VSSA for transportation efficiency. VSSA consists of two layers: service layer and application layer. The service layer is implemented based on the service-oriented architecture (SOA) to ease application developments. By extending and composing the web services in this(More)
Advances in sensor cloud computing to support vehicular applications are becoming more important as the need to better utilize computation and communication resources and make them energy efficient. In this paper, we propose a novel approach to minimize energy consumption of processing a vehicular application within mobile wireless sensor networks (MWSN)(More)
