Predicting Wi-Fi Availability using Bluetooth and Cellular Signals

By Ganesh Ananthanarayanan and Ion Stoica


With the various network interfaces of a mobile device having complementary characteristics in terms of power consumption, throughput and range, efforts are on to combine their positives. We aim to reduce the idle power consumption of Wi-Fi by using a combination of bluetooth and cellular data for localization, learning and prediction. We show that the combination of bluetooth and cellular data offer a good mix of coarse-grained and fine-grained accuracy as well as coverage
