In this paper we examine the complex behaviour that emerges from the implementation of an energy-aware system using a simple transmission power control algorithm that exploits overheard MAC-level information to reduce a device’s energy consumption. We evaluate this simple algorithm using two radio systems and show that, in spite of the complexity, energy savings can be obtained using a scheme that takes advantage of overheard information.
