Abstract

Opportunistic or device-to-device communications offer a great chance for straight-forward and cost-effective interoperability among various devices and manufacturers, from tiny sensors to end-used smartphones. However, their implementation is not trivial, as no standard communication technologies exist for their purposes. This paper explores the available options, qualitatively compares their properties, focusing especially on power consumption and user friendliness. We also offer an experimental comparison of their energy consumption and discuss further needed developments.
