Mobile computing is a technology that allows transmission of audio, video, and other types of data via a computer or any other wireless enabled device without having to be connected to a fixed physical link. Despite increasing usage of mobile computing, exploiting its full potential is difficult due to its inherent problems such as resource scarcity, connection instability, and limited computational power. In particular, the advent of connecting mobile devices to the Internet offers the possibility of offloading computation and data intensive tasks from mobile devices to remote cloud servers for efficient execution. This proposed thesis research develops an algorithm that uses an objective function to adaptively decide strategies for computational offloading according to changing context information. By following the style of service-oriented architecture (SOA), the proposed framework brings cloud computing to mobile devices for mobile applications to benefit from remote execution of tasks in the cloud. In addition to technical details of the algorithm and framework, this presentation will also discuss preliminary results of experiment with a newly developed system for self-driving vehicles, and points out the anticipated advantages of adaptive computational offloading.
