Powering the massive number of small computing devices in the Internet of Things (IoT) is a major challenge because replacing their batteries or powering them with wires is very expensive and impractical. A viable option to enable a perpetual network operation is through the use of far-field Wireless Power Transfer (WPT). We study a large network architecture that uses a combination of WPT and backscatter communication. The network consists of power beacons (PBs) and passive backscatter nodes… CONTINUE READING
