Abstract


  • The wireless sensor node architecture proposed in

    this paper is optimized for use in a wireless interactive

    point, listen and see system. In particular, we focus on

    developing a wireless sensor node that can be

    remotely charged by harvesting microwave energy.

    The current system implementation allows a user to

    access information from a remote sensor via their

    mobile computing device. These sensors are limited in

    complexity due to the limited power available, and are

    cumbersome since manual intervention is required to

    replace its batteries. We propose a system where

    battery powered wireless sensor nodes can be

    recharged by harvesting energy from a microwave

    Radio Frequency (RF) signal source. The remote

    power charging module of the wireless sensor node

    architecture consisted of an antenna array and a

    rectification circuit. A prototype of the antenna array

    and rectification circuit of the remote power charging

    module for the wireless sensor node was constructed

    and is presented in this paper.
