Abstract / Description of output

Mobile Cloud Computing refers to offloading computationally intensive algorithms from a mobile device to a cloud in order to save resources (time and energy) in the mobile device. But when the connection to the cloud is non-existent or limited, as in battle-space scenarios, neighbouring devices could be an alternative to the cloud. In this paper we have developed a framework to offload computationally intensive algorithms to neighbours. We also propose few algorithms to maximize the performance of these system in a real-time computer vision applications. Results show significant performance increment while using some extra energy resource. Finally we define a new performance metric which also incorporates the energy consumed and compare the offloading algorithms.
