Wirelessly Powered Sensor Networks and Computational RFID by Joshua R. Smith (auth.), Joshua R. Smith (eds.)

By Joshua R. Smith (auth.), Joshua R. Smith (eds.)

The instant identity and Sensing Platform (WISP) is the 1st of a brand new category of RF-powered sensing and computing platforms. instead of being powered by means of batteries, those sensor platforms are powered via radio waves which are both intentionally broadcast or ambient. Enabled through ongoing exponential advancements within the strength potency of microelectronics, RF-powered sensing and computing is speedily relocating alongside a trajectory from very unlikely (in the hot past), to possible (today), towards sensible and average (in the close to future).

This publication is a suite of key papers on RF-powered sensing and computing platforms together with the WISP. numerous of the papers grew out of the WISP problem, a software within which Intel company donated WISPs to educational candidates who proposed compelling WISP-based tasks. The ebook additionally comprises papers offered on the first WISP Summit, a workshop held in Berkeley, CA in organization with the ACM Sensys convention, in addition to different suitable papers.

The ebook presents a window into the attention-grabbing new international of wirelessly powered sensing and computing.
