MANET transmission is one solution towards achieving routing in a ubicomp environment and if well designed, it can help in energy containment in ubicomp . Application of location-aware transmission strategies may enhance energy management and conservation and hence remain a serious topic of research. MANET nodes adopt an automated collective load sharing transmission strategy. Hence MANET nodes are themselves the infrastructure nodes. Situations of completely equitable transmission (Fairness) load sharing will be very rarely reached. However, one criteria which can serve for a sender to decide to start a transmission or not will be: “How much Fairness is being reached by other senders in the ubicomp?” This feature will require either recording of previous sender’s Fairness Proportion or an empirical predictability model (or both). Such questions remain determining factors of success of transmission in cooperative functionality. Previous studies in this direction were made  whereby the metrics BFEA and ECFP were devised. Development of two derived metrics followed: Min_FP  and Max_FP . In this paper, another metric S_FP, derived from ECFP, is defined and its corresponding trends over varying node densities are presented. This paper consolidates further the area of modelling for energy management in ubicomp for designers to assess Fairness characteristics and subsequently better shape future ubicomp technology. This paper is a follow-up of previous research [1-24].
