Indoor Light Energy Measurements Added to CRAWDAD Wireless Data Repository

Created on Friday, 15 April 2011

The indoor radiant energy measurements we have been collecting over the last 1.5 years have been contributed to the CRAWDAD wireless data repository, and can be accessed at http://www.crawdad.org/columbia/enhants [bib entry].

These first-of-their-kind measurements allow characterizing light energy available in different environments, and can be used as energy inputs to simulators and emulators. We have used the measurements in two recent papers (IEEE INFOCOM'11 paper "Networking Low Power Energy Harvesting Devices: Measurements and Algorithms" and an IEEE WiOpt'11 paper "Performance Evaluation of Resource Allocation Policies for Energy Harvesting Devices"), and are thrilled to have an opportunity to share the measurements through CRAWDAD.
