Abstract

With the advent of mobile computing and mobile cloud computing, many smart computing applications can be developed. In this paper, we present three smart computing applications using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and mobile Intercloud technologies. The first application is a smart roll call application using BLE, enabling teachers to easily take attendance while at the same time ensuring privacy. The second application is an ad hoc positioning application with a new BLE positioning paradigm. In this case, a user can determine the positions of other users through an ad hoc network. Experiments were conducted to evaluate the accuracy of this positioning method. The third application is a mobile Intercloud application, which allows mobile terminals to transfer data through their associated clouds (i.e., using an Intercloud protocol for data transfer). Experimental results are presented to evaluate performance.
