  • Publication number: 20180081417
    Abstract: A method for managing a battery-powered device. In one embodiment, the method includes a computer processor identifying a first plan of activities to be performed by a battery-powered device, where the first plan of activities includes an estimated first power consumption for the first plan of activities. The method further includes determining a level of power of a first battery of the battery-powered device. The method further includes generating a first set of implementation details that manage power consumption within the battery-powered device while performing the first plan of activities, based on the estimated first power consumption and the determined power level of the first battery of the battery-powered device. The method further includes applying the first set of implementation details to the battery-powered device to perform the first plan of activities.
