Due to their wide distribution and their growth in functionalities, mobile devices are the interaction point between users and the surrounding environment. Nevertheless, their resources are limited and variable over time, both in terms of performance and power. Especially when dealing with power consumption, mobile devices cannot disregard the environment conditions and the user habits. To manage at the best one of the most important mobile device resource, battery lifetime, we are proposing MPower, an adaptive power management system for Android based mobile devices. The ultimate goal of this research is to automatically generate and select user-specific power profiles, to best optimize the device power consumption given the device features, the environmental conditions and the user needs. MPower is a project currently under development and this paper aims at presenting the overall vision of the research, focusing on the data collection phase, which is a central activity to fulfill the proposed objectives.
