Reliable Realtime Streaming in Vehicular Cloud-Fog Computing Networks


We propose a distributed strategy for reliable realtime streaming in vehicular cloud-fog networks. The key aspect of our proposed strategy is that the streaming content is preallocated from computing service providers (Fogs and Clouds) aimed to sustain the quality of service of realtime streaming. The mobile device reserves content for streaming based on stochastic predictions of its locations, the amount of content required for streaming and the required tokens used for reservation. Therefore, the reliability of the realtime streaming can be effectively maintained. Another important aspect of the proposed strategy is that the scheme can adapt to the change of the behavior of the mobile device and the condition of the computing resources without tuning the parameters for execution. To evaluate our proposed scheme, we model a utility function based on the reliability of content streaming and the number of tokens used for preallocating content. Simulation results show that the proposed strategy performs better than other schemes in terms of utility and reliability.


Dr. Huang received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from National Central University, Taiwan, in 2006, the M.S. degree in communication engineering from National Chiao-Tung University, Taiwan, in 2008. She also received M.S. degrees in both electrical & computer engineering (2008) and computer science (2010), and Ph.D degree in electrical & computer engineering (2012) all from University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Before joining NTUST in Feb. 2018, Dr. Huang worked as assistant professor in National Central University from 2013-2018. She worked as member of technical staff in Optimum Semiconductor Tech. Inc, NY, USA from 2013-2015. In 2012-2013, she was a senior software engineer at Qualcomm Tech. San Diego, CA, USA. She also worked as assistant research fellow at Information and Communication Tech. Lab, National Chiao-Tung University, Taiwan in 2013.
