The paper entitled Mobile Energy Sharing through Power Buddies, by Eyuphan Bulut, Boleslaw K. Szymanski was presented by authors at the IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference (WCNC) in San Francisco, CA on March 22, 2017. Recently power sharing technologies and gadgets have emerged enabling harvesting power from other mobile devices in the user’s vicinity. The authors discuss the energy sharing in mobile social networks whose nodes are human-carried mobile devices operating on batteries. The authors propose an energy sharing model by pairing the nodes in a mobile network into power buddies. Simulation results show that a typical application scenario of energy sharing among power buddies provides a remarkable amount of saving in the utilization of power available in the entire network.
