We want to take advantage of a sustainable, untapped energy source, freely floating around each of us, every day. With the rapid growth of the Wireless Communications Industry, and the 5G ‘arms race’ between carriers, unprecedented growth in the volume of Ambient Radio Frequency Energy is being seen. In doing this, it will address a wireless charging market that is expected to reach over $19 billion by 2028.
Our planet generates an abundance of Green Rf energy just waiting to be harvested.
From observations, competitors are proposing “solutions” using “Near-Field Communications (NFC)” that can recharge the battery yet requires immobile positioning for lengthy periods of time, effectively negating the intended mobility of the device, and mandates the purchase of emitter devices to place additional energy into the environment for NFC RF harvesting. By utilizing FFC, we are proposing two effective solutions that return full mobility to the device subscriber. Rf Harvesting technology will harvest RF energy from various sources within the environment (especially cell towers operated by wireless carriers) and trickle charge the device battery on a basis simulating the device being plugged into a power source.
Sold as a device of “mobility”, during periods of recharge, this mobility is lost (not available).
The subscriber/owner might have access to power to plug in the device, but in many cases external power access is not available.
Depending upon how the device is being used, a shutdown might be just an inconvenience up to a matter of extreme personal safety or business loss.
Anytime the phone cannot be used to summon help, regardless of location, then a drained battery is of paramount importance.
By applying power harvesting technologies, devices and equipment can become self-sustaining with respect to the energy required for operation, thereby obtaining an unlimited operating lifespan.
History has proven that scientific, academic achievement and progress is always contested especially when the current system of science or academics is challenged with competition, replacement or extinction.
Several firms have presented prototypes based upon extraction of energy using Near-Field Charging (Transmitters) yet none have delivered a commercialized product that can be utilized in an open environment to support mobility in smartphones. It is a belief that Far-Field Charging is the solution that will be able to re-charge batteries of Smartphones & IoT's from energy sources at much greater distances, not hindered by constraints of proximity and line-of-sight at certain angles, nor the additional output of energy just to harvest it.
In a rapidly evolving marketplace, many promises are being made and many are overly optimistic or even false. (short list)
