Abstract: To reduce the power consumption of mobile sink node, a new state PER_NOTIFICATION is added to the standard Android system. Therefore, USB devices can be added to or removed from the system by the sys file interface according to users' specific demand, realising a more fine-grained power management. In addition, an improved CPU load prediction algorithm SAWDLP is proposed to replace the default one in on-demand governor. With SAWDLP, a more accurate CPU load prediction can be done and then a more appropriate frequency can be chosen to reduce the CPU power consumption. Experimental results show that the PER_NOTIFICATION works well in managing the USB devices. The SAWDLP algorithm gets 85.20% higher accuracy in CPU load prediction and 0.40% lower power consumption in comparison to the PAST algorithm, accomplishing the goal of low power design and run time extension.
