This study has investigated how the energy consumption can be reduced in a mobile sensor unit by using a dynamic measurement scheme. This was done by developing a scheme based on inspiration from existing works in related areas and on techniques found in literature.
The developed scheme was then implemented on a mobile sensor unit and tests were conducted where the energy consumed by the scheme was measured. This was compared to a static baseline approach in order to evaluate the efficiency of the scheme.
The results showed that on the platform used in this thesis the developed scheme can reduce the energy consumption in a typical scenario by 4.7% or 6.7% depending on which sensors are used. A conclusion drawn is that the platform has a major impact on how effective the scheme can be.
