Advances in cloud computing have simplified the way that both software development and testing are performed. This is not true for battery testing for which state of the art test-beds simply consist of one phone attached to a power meter. These test-beds have limited resources, access, and are overall hard to maintain; for these reasons, they often...

Conference Paper
There has been a growing interest in measuring and optimizing the power efficiency of mobile apps. Traditional power evaluations rely either on inaccurate software-based solutions or on ad-hoc testbeds composed of a power meter and a mobile device. This demonstration presents BatteryLab, our solution to share existing battery testing setups to buil...

... We have released WPM as a web application integrated with BatteryLab which offers such testing capabilities to the public, in real time. This paper extends our previously published work [44] in many ways: ...
... We focus on classic web performance metrics [25] (FirstContent-fulPaint, SpeedIndex and PageLoadTime), as well as CPU, and bandwidth usage. For the Samsung J3, we also report on battery consumption measured by a power meter directly connected to the device in battery bypass [26]. Given that not all browsers on Android allow communication with their developer tools, which is used by WebPageTest, we have also developed a tool which uses the Android Debugging Bridge (adb) [6] to automate a browser, i.e., launch and load a webpage, while monitoring resource utilization. ...
