Studying the effect of MAGEEC on real software

Greetings! I am Stoil Ganev, a Computer Science student at the University of Bristol and I am working on the MAGEEC project over this summer.

One of my main responsibilities is to find systems that are most likely to have practical benefits from energy optimisations on their software and then study the effect of MAGEEC on their real world applications. For example, I have looked at systems which have a limited power supply or an unreliable one such as batteries and solar panels. Example benefits for such systems may be increased battery time, the ability to use smaller solar panels or keeping energy consumption low enough for solar panels to keep up in rainy periods. Also, these systems have to be open source both hardware and software wise so that I can construct them and compile their source code using MAGEEC.
