A statistical model for optimizing power consumption of printers.
Victor Ciriza, Laurent Donini, Jean-Baptiste Durand, Stéphane Girard
The goal of this study is to determine a policy based on the analysis of user behavior in order to adapt and reduce power consumption of printers to real usage patterns. To this end, we introduce a criterion defined by a compromise between power consumption and user impact. The optimal wait interval is inferred by minimizing this criterion.
