Agent Technology Based Resource Allocation for Fog Enhanced Vehicular Services
IoT comprising heterogenous devices with varied and constrained resources imposes challenge in managing the available network resources. The new technology raised to solve these challenges is fog computing. In this research work, Agent technology for Fog enhanced vehicular services model is proposed. For managing the resources at the edge of the network fog is used and cloud agency is used for providing services to the tasks that are not given by the fog. The proposed work is designed and simulated using cloudsim tool and analysed using cloud analyst tool. Performance measures such as resource utilization, allocation time and congestion rate is measured and resulted with better resource utilization, less allocation time and reduced congestion rate.
