Abstract

In mobile peer-to-peer information sharing, binding to - and sharing with - another device uses up computing resources and makes sense only when certain conditions are met. We propose a visual notation and an software tool for mobile devices that address the need for a simple and intuitive way to allow the setting and testing of policies for on-the-go information exchange (e.g., playlists). This intuitive and visual approach - called MotionMaps - is well-suited for small screens and helps ensure efficient use of device and network resources. This last claim is supported in this paper by simulation and analysis that makes clear the impact of these policies on the effectiveness of information exchange across several mobile use cases.
