Bluetooth energy consumption

By jonine ·

I am writing a paper about energy-aware mobile systems. Maybe somebody has found or knows a methodology how to measure bluetooth energy consumption while transferring files (e.g. music audio)? Maybe there is some software what can evaluate energy consumption (some intelligent snifer evaluating sent and received packets) ?

Have you tried....

....maybe Googling benchmark tests for whatever device you are researching? As for the sent and received packets, maybe use a PC with a wireless card to send/receive to/from the bluetooth and use the PC's utility to measure packet transmission? Most software will stick an icon in the system tray and when clicked on, it will show you packets sent/received. Good luck.

About searching

by jonine In reply to Have you tried....

I am working with palm zire 72, the problem is that neither manufacture nor researcher haven't shown any results of that kind (i keep searching for one week ). I am interested in packet-energy dependence, but it seems that everything that BT device consumes depends on BT controller and if you want know how much energy it consumes, you should measure it with osciloscopes, analyzers etc.
