Mobile computing is a key enabling technology for large scale distributed applications, such as smart phone, mobile internet, mobile game and mobile multimedia, mobile Internet of Things (IoTs), mobile sensor cloud, and mobile machine to machine communications. However, mobile computing is a very large energy consumer. Green mobile computing, with the aim of reducing energy costs and CO2 emissions, as well as protecting the environment, is becoming a potential research focus for many next-generation communications’ and networks’ designers. In spite of the increasing demand for all kinds of mobile computing services, there is still a lack of a clear understanding of analytical and power-efficient mobile computing and techniques, as well as best practices, to design energy-efficient, utility, pervasive, scalable, autonomy-oriented mobile computing and applications.
The objective of this special issue is to bring together state-of-the-art research contributions that address these key aspects of green mobile computing and applications.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to:
- Energy-efficient mobile network architecture design
- Energy-efficient protocol design
- Energy-efficient handover in heterogeneous networks
- Power-efficient mobile terminal equipment
- Optimisation for green wireless networking
- Power-efficient RFID, sensor communications
- Energy-efficient mobile applications
- Measurement, metrics, and profiling of energy consumption in mobile computing
- Platforms, tools, and design methods
- Green IoTs
- Green cloud computing
