In this paper we propose and analyze a new interface idling mechanism for improving energy efficiency of IEEE 802.11 based MAC hardware. A novel protocol state analysis technique is developed for detecting time windows during which a wireless interface consumes energy due to 802.11 overhearing. During this window, energy savings at the MAC layer is accomplished by forcing the wireless interface to a relatively lower-energy idling state. At the end of this window, the interface is transitioned… CONTINUE READING
