Mobile networking devices autonomy can be prolonged by condensing sporadic traffic at the last hop, allowing the receiver to sleep during idle intervals. We claim that Delay Tolerant Networking principles are a natural fit for this application and, along with a novel rendezvous mechanism, employ DTN to achieve energy efficiency. The effectiveness of the proposed scheme is supported by select evidence from our previous experimental work. The presented experimental evidence is followed by a
