  • Patent number: 9612871
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention are directed to a wireless resource borrowing environment enabled by a wireless bus comprising a plurality of wireless-enabled components (WECs). In an embodiment, the WECs use the wireless bus to share resource information (including resource availability information) among each others. For example, a WEC may share with other WECs information regarding its processing and memory resources. The WEC may then use the shared resource information to identify resources at other WECs that it may borrow to perform certain tasks. In an embodiment, resource borrowing is performed according to a cost-based method which optimizes resource borrowing according to a cost function. The cost function may be designed to optimize resource borrowing according to any combination of one or more factors, including power consumption, processing speed, delay, interference, error rate, reliability, load at the lender WEC, computing capability at the lender WEC, etc.
