This paper presents the architectural design and implementation of CoMOS, a component messaging based operating system for mobile sensing and communication devices with multiple, heterogeneous processors. Potential applications of these devices include personal voice or video services, health monitoring, and environmental sensing. To enable timely processing of environmental or user events and energy-efficient operations, the system uses a stack-based preemption mechanism and supports task… CONTINUE READING
