The Internet of Things (IoT) is a key enabler for remote monitoring and control of any medium with wireless devices deployed in substantial numbers.

By coupling data from empirical measurements on EH profiles with Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations on indoor WPT, we propose and numerically evaluate design guidelines for energy-neutral wireless-powered networks, in which a source first extracts energy from its medium and then uses the collected energy to operate wireless devices via WPT. The initial findings reveal that the IoT devices in a 100m2 office building can be remotely energized by only three EH-enabled wireless power transmitting sources validating the proposed architecture.

Abstract

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a key enabler for remote monitoring and control of any medium with wireless devices deployed in substantial numbers. However, these devices often lack the desired lifetimes due to their incompetent batteries. If the envisaged scale of the IoT is realized, replenishing millions of batteries will become impractical. To address this issue, joint utilization of two prominent technologies, energy harvesting (EH) and wireless power transfer (WPT), is explored in this paper. By coupling data from empirical measurements on EH profiles with Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations on indoor WPT, we propose and numerically evaluate design guidelines for energy-neutral wireless-powered networks, in which a source first extracts energy from its medium and then uses the collected energy to operate wireless devices via WPT. The initial findings reveal that the IoT devices in a 100m2 office building can be remotely energized by only three EH-enabled wireless power transmitting sources validating the proposed architecture.
