Why it’s so important to shift from application-centric to OS-level approaches.
Energy efficiency is a top concern among developers building connected devices for the smart grid. Initially, the application-centric approach to building a device was used. But today, with sophisticated hardware power management features available on most modern processors, this is no longer the case. What’s needed is an OS-level approach that allows developers to take advantage of the full range of power features on today’s hardware. This paper introduces you to many of these techniques.
