Title (EN) OPTIMIZING BATTERY USAGE
(FR) OPTIMISATION DE L'USAGE DE BATTERIE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Techniques for optimizing battery usage are provided. The techniques include sensing energy level of a battery, comparing the sensed energy level of the battery to a predetermined energy threshold for the battery, and controlling energy flow to and from the battery based on the comparison of the sensed energy level and the energy threshold.
(FR)Cette invention concerne des techniques propres à optimiser l'usage de batteries. Ces techniques consistent à détecter le niveau d'énergie d'une batterie, à comparer le niveau d'énergie détecté à un seuil d'énergie prédéterminé pour la batterie, et à réguler le flux d'énergie en direction et en provenance de la batterie sur la base d'une comparaison entre le niveau d'énergie détecté et ledit seuil d'énergie.
