- first measure the power consumption in an idle state. That is, the program doing a 60 second wait.
- then measure the power consumption in a busy state. That is, while the program is doing 60 seconds of additions.
The difference is what you're looking for.
I need a help regarding my academic project where I am trying to measure the power consumed by a mobile device for a specific task. For example if we are using a calculator application and I perform addition of two numbers. I want to check the power consumed for this particular operation of addition. There are few applications like PowerTutor in Android mobiles, but they give the power consumed by the mobile on whole and not for a specific task. Can you please guide me or provide technical tips on this? Thanks, in advance!
