Excessive power consumption is a major problem in wireless communication. This is particularly true in ubiquitous computing environments, since wireless devices consume a considerable amount of energy in idle listening. Wake-up wireless communication technology is a promising candidate for reducing power consumption during idle listening. To realize wake-up wireless communication, this paper proposes a novel ID matching mechanism that uses a Bloom filter. This paper describes the design and implementation of a wireless wake-up module that uses this ID matching mechanism. Simulation results reveal that the wake-up module consumes only 12.4 muW while idle listening, and that employing this Bloom-filter-based approach eliminates 99.95 % of power consumption in our application scenarios.
