Data transmission in point to point wireless communication degrades the energy efficiency. One of the primary solutions to overcome this problem is to minimize the power consumption. Here, the delay sensitive data (e.g., multimedia data) are transmitted over a wireless channel. Delay sensitive communication system operates in dynamic environment conditions. A new Q-learning algorithm which dynamically adapts to the environment to achieve power management. The Q-learning based power management is more flexible and highly adaptive. It is a simple update step performed at the end of each time slot.
