Overview

While battery capacity is often insufficient to keep up with the power-demanding features of the latest mobile devices, powering the functional advancement of wireless devices requires a revolution in the concept of battery life and recharge capability. Future handheld devices and wireless networks should be able to recharge themselves automatically from the environment and optimize their energy consumption.

Green Mobile Devices and Networks: Energy Optimization and Scavenging Techniques provides insights into the principles and technical challenges behind both automatic optimization of energy consumption and energy gathering from alternative environmental sources. It introduces the basic background, motivation, and principles of various technologies, supplying detailed and integrated coverage of different optimization and energy scavenging techniques. In particular, the book:

  • Examines the technical challenges behind automatic optimization of the energy consumption in dynamic real-time scenarios
  • Considers different types of energy scavenging techniques
  • Describes the various technologies behind harvesting energy through different sources—including solar, acoustics, kinetic, mechanical vibrations, and electromagnetic waves

Striking a balance between theory and implementation, the book links different concepts with applications of corresponding schemes and connects them to various standards. It discusses the continuous monitoring of battery life and the automatic adjustment of different functionalities—including data reception, processing and display, complexity of software modules, and perceived video quality—to provide you with a clear understanding of the technical challenges, measurement of energy gain, limitations, and future opportunities.

Meet the Author

Hrishikesh Venkataraman, PhD, is a senior researcher and Enterprise Ireland (EI) principal investigator with Performance Engineering Laboratory at the Irish national research center—The RINCE Institute, at Dublin City University (DCU), Ireland. He obtained his PhD from Jacobs University Bremen, Germany, in 2007, for his research on wireless cellular networks. He obtained his master’s degree from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Kanpur, India, in 2004, and did his master’s thesis from Vodafone Chair for Mobile Communications, Technical University Dresden, Germany, in 2003–2004 under the Indo-German DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst) Fellowship. His research interests include mobile multimedia, wireless communications, and energy in wireless. Dr. Venkataraman has published more than 30 papers in journals, international conferences, and book chapters, and has won a Best Paper Award at an international conference at the University of Berkeley, California, in October 2009. Currently, Dr. Venkataraman is an executive editor of European Transactions on Telecommunications (ETT) and is a founding member of the UKRI (United Kingdom/Republic of Ireland) chapter of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) Vehicular Technology Society.

Gabriel-Miro Muntean, PhD, has established a strong track record in the areas of quality-oriented and performance-aware adaptive multimedia streaming and data communications in heterogeneous wireless environments. Dr. Muntean has been the co-director of a 10-person research laboratory since 2003, which is a state-of-the-art facility at the Dublin City University (DCU) Engineering building and well equipped for multimedia delivery research. He has successfully supervised three PhD and three masters for research students, and is currently supervising seven postgraduate researchers and one postdoctoral researcher. Dr. Muntean has received more than 1 million Euro of funding, having been principal investigator on two EI (Enterprise Ireland), one SFI (Science Foundation Ireland), and five IRCSET (Irish Research Council for Science, Engineering, and Technology) grants and collaborator on two other major Irish grants. In addition, he has been leading Samsung and Microsoft funded research projects. Dr. Muntean has authored one book, edited two, and has published five book chapters as well as 25 journal articles and more than 60 conference papers. He has been awarded four Best Paper Awards and is an associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Broadcasting.
