Abstract

Context-aware scenarios require the distribution of large amounts of context data over fixed wireless infrastructures. The opportunistic usage of mobile nodes as data carriers has received a great deal of interests in recent years in order to increase system scalability. In this paper, we focus on the overhead introduced by context distribution on mobile devices, and we highlight the need of resource-aware solutions to trade off run-time overhead with available resources. Next, we propose a novel algorithm to dynamically adapt data distribution task processing load at mobile devices. Our experimental results, obtained using a real testbed, demonstrate that our approach ensures correct resource management under a wide range of different working conditions.
