With self-provisioning of resources as premise, dew computing aims at providing computing services by minimizing the dependency over existing internetwork back-haul. Mobile devices have a huge potential to contribute to this emerging paradigm, not only due to their proximity to the end user, ever growing computing/storage features and pervasiveness, but also due to their capability to render services for several hours, even days,without being plugged to the electricity grid. Nonetheless,misusing the energy of their batteries can discourage owners to offer devices as resource providers in dew computing environments. Arguably, having accurate estimations of remaining battery would help to take better advantage of a device´s computing capabilities. In this paper, we propose a model to estimate mobile devices battery availability by inspecting traces of real mobile device owner´s activity and relevant device state variables. Themodel includes a feature extraction approach to obtain representative features/variables, and a prediction approach, based on regression models and machine learning classifiers. On average, the accuracy of our approach, measured with the mean squared error metric, overpasses the one obtained by a relatedwork. Prediction experiments at five hours ahead are performed over activity logs of 23 mobile users across several months.
