Today's mobile devices are equipped with a rich set of sensors such as accelerometers, ambient light sensors, compasses, pressure sensors, and
GPS receivers. Gathering user context such as user activity, geographic location, and location type requires continuous sampling of these sensors.
However, such sampling shortens device battery life due to the associated energy overhead. We will examine the root causes of this energy
overhead and present ongoing research on system and sensor architectural designs that enable energy-efficient continuous sensing.
Bodhi Priyantha is a researcher at Microsoft Research, Redmond. His research interests include low-power systems design, wireless communication,
and networked sensing. Priyantha has a PhD in electrical engineering and computer sciences from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
