Abstract

Extending battery life for smartphones while using wireless networks is important. In this paper, we propose Comfort Route for Energy Saving (CRFES), which helps users extend the battery life of their smartphones by navigating to their destinations via Quality of Service (QoS)-compliant energy-efficient spots such as Wi-Fi spots. To create CRFES, we construct maps of Wi-Fi spots using logging software we developed for Android phones. In addition to locations, we record actual throughput and energy consumption observed in cellular/Wi-Fi networks. So comfort route navigation is done by choosing a route which minimizes energy consumption instead of choosing the shortest path. Evaluations are carried out by computer simulation and one real city map. The results conclude that CRFES can save the battery life by approximately 50% by spending 1.6 times time cost to reach their destinations on average.
