Wireless charging through directed radio frequency (RF) waves is an emerging technology that can be used to replenish the battery of a sensor node, albeit at the cost of data communication in the network. This tradeoff between energy transfer and communication functions requires a fresh perspective on medium access control (MAC) protocol design for appropriately sharing the channel. Through an experimental study, we demonstrate how the placement, the chosen frequency, and number of the RF… CONTINUE READING
