Optimizing Mobile Application Performance With Model-Driven Engineering
Source: Vanderbilt University
Future embedded and ubiquitous computing systems will operate continuously on mobile devices, such as smartphones, with limited processing capabilities, memory, and power. A critical aspect of developing future applications for mobile devices will be ensuring that the application provides sufficient performance while maximizing battery life. Determining how a software architecture will affect power consumption is hard because the impact of software design on power consumption is not well understood. Typically, the power consumption of a mobile software architecture can only be determined after the architecture is implemented, which is late in the development cycle when design changes are costly.
