Efficient GPS

Project Overview

GPS services are becoming commonly available on mobile phones. However, accessing GPS services is "expensive" in terms of the power required and applications that make constant use of GPS services have a substantial impact on battery life.

We are experimenting with adaptive algorithms and mechanisms for accessing GPS services that will provide substantively equivalent resolution while dramatically decreasing the impact on battery life.
