Wireless RF energy transfer for indoor sensors is an emerging paradigm that ensures continuous operation without battery limitations. However, high power radiation within the ISM band interferes with the packet reception for existing WiFi devices. The paper proposes the first effort in merging the RF energy transfer functions within a standards compliant 802.11 protocol to realize practical and WiFi-friendly Energy Delivery (WiFED). The WiFED architecture is composed of a centralized controller…
