Professor Antti Ylä-Jääski and Data Communications Software Group from CSE Department have been awarded 500 000 Euro funding for eMo –project by the Academy of Finland. Energy-Optimized Mobile Computing (eMo) aims to provide models for understanding and evaluating the energy consumption of existing protocols and applications in mobile devices and access networks, and based on these models develop new solutions for mobile computing that consume radically less energy than the currently used ones.
Energy consumption is a concern with today’s mobile devices. While the capabilities of the devices have improved rapidly over the last ten years transforming also the way these devices are being utilized, battery technology has not been able to keep up with this evolution. As a consequence, there is an increasing gap between the battery capacity and the amount of energy required for typical usage. The situation calls for solutions that enable more energy efficient usage of mobile services.
eMo-project addresses this problem by building theoretical models of energy consumption in mobile devices with the help of experimentation and measurements. New protocols that aim for energy-optimal execution will be developed based on these models. The target solution will consume radically less energy than currently used solutions.
Project duration is 1.9.2011 – 1.9.2014 and it will be carried out in co-operation with University of Helsinki, Tsinghua University, University of Oslo, l’Université Nice Sophia Antipolis, Deutsche Telekom AG Laboratories and Nokia Research Center. Primary research unit is Data Communications Software (DCS), Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Aalto University School of Science and Technology
