Every sixth Android App has Energy Bugs

On 12. August 2013, in Allgemein, by cwilke

18% of all Android applications contain energy bugs. This is the central result of a study conducted at the Technische Universität Dresden, being presented at the international GreenCom 2013 conference on August, 21st. Besides from energy bugs in applications developed by small and unknown software developers, energy bugs can be found for mailing and social media applications of well-known software developers such as Microsoft (Outlook) and Google (Google+).

German Version / Deutsche Version

Within the study, more than 9 million user comments extracted from the Google Play store have been extracted and analyzed w.r.t. hints indicating negative energy behavior of the respective applications.

QualiTune @ Linux Days in Chemnitz

On 25. Januar 2012, in Allgemein, by cwilke

At March 17th and 18th 2012, the Linux Days 2012 (Linux-Tage) will take place in Chemnitz, Saxonia. Within the workshop section the QualiTune team will present the NaoService as an approach to expose the Nao’s API as a Web service. This allows for easy integration within to distributed application scenarios or other software applications communicating with or controlling Naos.

The presentation will be held in room V2 (Hörsaal- und Seminar-Gebäude der Technischen Universität Chemnitz, Reichenhainer Straße 90) on Saturday, 17th March at 5:00 PM. More information regarding the presentation and a German abstract can be found at http://chemnitzer.linux-tage.de/2012/vortraege/1016.
