Abstract

There has been a recent growth in the usage of smartphones and complex applications. The hardware specifications of these smartphones vary but the computing complexity in real-time application such as image processing, face recognition, live stream gaming keeps increasing. This results in a bottleneck on the CPU utilization of the mobile device. To eradicate this, in this research proposal a framework has been proposed that uses offloading technology and combines the edge device and the cloud server for offloading. A novel algorithm known as resource provisioning considers the network status of the device and decides on the offloading location. An android application with Fibonacci series and image processing functionalities is developed to evaluate the experiment. Based on the execution time in the three environments as the parameter for evaluation, the results indicate that the execution time drastically reduces when performing offloading compared to the local execution.
