The past decade has seen a surge of research activities in the fields of mobile computing and wireless communication. In particular, recent technological advances have made portable devices, such as PDA, laptops, and wireless modems to be very compact and affordable. To effectively operate portable devices, energy efficiency and Quality of Service (QoS) provisioning are two primary concerns. Dynamic Voltage Scaling (DVS) is a common method for energy conservation for portable devices. However, due to the amount of data that needs to be dynamically handled in varying time periods, it is difficult to apply conventional DVS techniques to QoS sensitive multimedia applications. In this paper, a new adaptive DVS algorithm is proposed for QoS assurance and energy efficiency. Based on the repeated learning model, the proposed algorithm dynamically schedules multimedia service requests to strike the appropriate performance balance between contradictory requirements. Experimental results clearly indicate the performance of the proposed algorithm over that of existing schemes.
