Wireless transmission of a single bit can require over 1000 times more energy than a single 32-bit computation. It can therefore be beneficial to perform additional computation to reduce the number of bits transmitted. If the energy required to compress data is less than the energy required to send it, there is a net energy savings and an increase in battery life for portable computers. This article presents a study of the energy savings possible by losslessly compressing data prior todoi:10.1145/1066116.1066123 fatcat:unyoxuspt5g37abrgzbm2juyge
