Executive Summary

The authors present a framework based on Markov decision process to optimize software on mobile phones. Unlike previous approaches in literature that focus on energy optimization while meeting a specific task-related time constraint, they model the desired talk-time as an explicit user given parameter and formulate the optimization of resources such as battery-life on a mobile phone as a decision processes that maximizes a user specified application specific reward or utility metric while meeting the talk-time constraint. They propose efficient techniques to solve the optimization problem based on dynamic programming and illustrate how it can be used in the context of realistic applications such as WiFi radio power optimization and email synchronization.
