With the promising development of user assist services on consumer electronics portable devices, service applications must continuously monitor dynamically changeable data and status, and judge whether their service actions should be activated. These operations, performed in real-time, result in heavy resource consumption on the portable devices. This paper proposes an innovative way to reduce the consumption by aggregating data access timings requested from multiple applications. Simulation shows that the proposed method can provide the highest precision data while reducing resource consumption. This mechanism can be installed into an operation system on a mobile device, or can operate as a middleware on the device. This must be one of key technologies to reduce battery power consumption of CE devices.
