IEEE 2012: Offloading Android Applications to the Cloud without Customizing Android

IEEE 2012 PerCom Workshop on Pervasive Wireless Networking,

Technology - Available in Android & J2EE Web Server

Abstract— Spreading more than twice as fast as PCs, smart phones are quickly becoming the primary mean for Internet access. However, smart phones today are still constrained by limited computation resources such as CPU, memory and battery. In this paper, we present a framework that automatically offloads heavy back-end tasks of a regular standalone Android application to an Android virtual machine in the cloud. This framework can be deployed in the application layer without modifying the underlying Android platform. It also features three metrics that consider total response time, energy consumption and remaining battery life in deciding whether a task should be offloaded.
