Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

set of inter-networked communication enabled devices that a user possesses, and replaces the single terminal of the traditional personal communication model. The PDE requires a device to host the local Device Management Entity, which coordinates the operation of these devices. The selection of this device should occur without any user interaction, and should consider the performance capabilities of the various devices. This paper presents an algorithm that selects a leader on the basis of performance capabilities, and is able to change the order of importance of the capabilities according to current circumstances.
