New communication services among nearby passing people are growing rapidly thanks to the advance of short-range wireless communication technologies and the widespread use of mobile devices that use them. Time-offset communication capability will engender a new service paradigm and promote new service emergence. This paper presents a proposal of a new distributed mobile cache system to cache data temporarily in a designated local area. The system is realized through collaborative consumer electronics mobile devices which use no infrastructure network. The system overview and its middleware on the mobile devices are explained. Furthermore, new relay data algorithms are proposed to provide lower-overhead communication and a more robust caching capability. Finally, results of simulation experiments underscore the effectiveness of the proposed control algorithm in terms of the communication cost and the length of the cache time.
