Recently, grid computing has attracted great attention. In grid computing, by using multiple computers and executing processes in parallel, we can get powerful computational power. Grid computing systems often employ regular computers such as personal computers or workstations. However, we can exploit computational power more effectively by employing compact computers embedded to many home electronics such as refrigerators or air-conditioners. In this paper, we propose a grid computing system using compact computers. Generally, embedded compact computers almost always execute their assigned processes. Therefore, our proposed system controls their computational powers so that processes required by the grid computing system do not interrupt assigned processes for compact computers.
