Virtual reality games and image processing Apps are examples of mobile cloud computing services (MCCS) common on Smartphones (SPs) nowadays, requiring intensive processing and/or wireless networking. The consequences are slow execution and huge battery consumption. Offloading the intensive computations of such Apps to a cloud based server can overcome such consequences. However, such offloading will introduce time delay and communication overheads. This paper proposes to do the offloading to nearby computing resources in a cooperative computation sharing network via short-range wireless connectivity. The proposed SCCOF reduces offloading response time and energy consumption overheads. SCCOF is supported by an intelligent cloud located controller that will form the cooperative resource sharing network on the go when needed, based on available devices in the vicinity, and will use the cloud if necessary. Upon the initiation of the MCCS service via the App, our controller will devise the offloaded VMs as well as the offloading network. A study test scenario was performed to evaluate the performance of SCCOF, resulting in saving of up to 16.2x in execution time and 57.25% energy.
