Projects : Power macro-model

This work developed a Macro-model to quickly and accurately estimate energy consumption of Android applications while developing them on Google Nexus One phone. The macro-model takes only high-level parameters such as status of WiFi, GPS, LCD brightness, and the like during the application execution, and gives an estimation of the energy consumption of the cell phone while executing that application. The model was tuned using actual measurements by internal battery sensors of Google Nexus One cell phone. This is a handy tool for Android application developers to track and tune battery use of their applications.
