Long Lasting Smartphone Charge, Up to One Week: Microsoft Research Goal
Long Lasting Smartphone Charge, Reaching One Week of Operation, Is the Goal of the Microsoft Research Team
Long lasting smartphone charge is the goal of smartphone manufacturers. Now Microsoft Research come up with an impressive goal. They want to develop a concept for a smartphone with a long lasting smartphone charge. Their goal is to enable the smartphone charge to last as much as one week.
Microsoft Research is one of the leaders with breakthrough concepts. Its Senior Researcher, Ranveer Chandra, informed the wide audience of his work on a long lasting smartphone charge. He has a lot of experience under his belt. He has worked in the fields of energy, wireless protocols, etc. In relation to his work on energy efficiency he shared Microsoft Research goals about the long lasting smartphone charge. The goal is not new for Microsoft Research. They started working on it in 2010. The work involves specialists in many areas. There are researchers specialized in hardware, in software, in networking, in security, in programming languages, etc. They have been working to help develop the smartphone for their goal – a long lasting smartphone charge. They are working to bring out an extremely energy efficient handset.
In the course of their work, Microsoft researchers have explored a number of batteries. They have explored the way in which the operating system works on them. The work has included also the operating system interaction with different apps. It has become clear that even small actions, like a push email, can take a lot of the charge of the smartphone. Currently Microsoft Research are working on the offloading of CPU processes to the cloud. That can save battery charge and help to reach the long lasting smartphone charge goal. Researchers are also exploring the way in which the operating system treats batteries, depending on the workload. There is a video illustrating their work. Those who are interested in the long lasting smartphone charge can watch it from the 8.00 minute.
