Abstract

As miniature-sized embedded computing platforms are ubiquitously deployed to our everyday environments, the issue of managing their power usage becomes important, especially when they are used in energy harvesting based self-organizing networks. One way to provide these devices with continuous power is to utilize RF-based energy transfer. Previous research in RF-based information and energy transfer builds up on the assumption that perfect channel estimation is easily achievable. However, as our preliminary experiments and many previous literature in wireless network systems show, making perfect estimations of the wireless channel is extremely challenging due to their quality fluctuations. To better reflect reality, in this work, we introduce an adaptive power allocation and splitting (APAS) scheme which takes imperfect channel estimations into consideration. Our evaluation results show that the proposed APAS scheme achieves near-optimal performances for transferring energy and data over a single RF transmission.
