Innovative applications become feasible with solutions for remotely controlling mobile devices over the air. To realize these applications, efficient technologies for transferring the devices' user interfaces are required. Existing remote user interface (UI) solutions however were not built for the mobile world. Rich, touchable user interfaces on battery-powered devices combined with low available bandwidth and high network latency will highlight their problems. We propose a new solution called RemoteUI, which works with abstract UI descriptions and their remote replication. Experiment results show that RemoteUI significantly outperforms the existing popular Virtual Network Computing (VNC) approach, and it is highly efficient in terms of required bandwidth when compared with VNC.
