Method and System for Forecasting Mobile Functionalities Based on Social Interaction

    When going around, several portable devices (smartphone, GPS, radio, etc) provide features such as 4G internet connection, chat tools, VOIP, etc.. Quite often, while going form one place to another one, or more features can become temporarily unavailable, due to signal unavailability, temporary bandwidth constraint, weather conditions, location conditions, tall buildings, tunnels, etc...

    When planning one's route, we are not aware that we can suddenly get problems (a call drop, a download stop, a chat tool stops updating, the GPS does not provide position updates/directions, etc) so we just set the best route (where best is in general the fastest or shortest one).

    The article describes a system which dynamically detects unavailability or degradation along a certain route of the portable device features which are used , and, said system can make route adjustments to maximize the availability time along the route of the portable device features which are used. The user then decides if he accepts the different route adjustments (which may imply a longer path); the user may also provide a priority among the services monitored by the system.

The main components of the proposed system are:


A Central Availability Data Repository (CADR) which is fed through Social data gathering from the user connected devices.

For example, a smart phone is connected and can inform the CADR when there i...
