The development of mobile worker solutions, such as meter reading or police report writing soft- ware requires that the solution be able to operate for at least the duration ofa standard shill (8 Hours). This poses quite a challenge to the energy systems (batteries) used in current wireless computing devices. Using all ofthe information available, (but typically discarded) about the environment that the solution is intended to operate in, it is possible to significantly extend the operational time for a solution for a given amount ofbattery capacity. Three potential areas for consideration are outlined below.
