Beamsteering for mobile devices could cut power consumption in half


When turned on, today's smart phones and other wireless devices radiate power in all directions while searching for communications nodes. But this omni-directionality can pose problems, such as limiting network capacity by causing interference among devices, as well as unnecessarily consuming power. However, if mobile devices could transmit power in a specific direction rather than all directions, researchers estimate that it could cut each device's power consumption by half. Now, a team from Rice University has developed a beamsteering technique for smart phones, Netbooks, and e-book readers that transmits power in one direction only. more
