The performance of today’s wireless communication devices is fundamentally constrained by the limited battery life of the devices, whose operations are frequently disrupted due to the need for manual battery replacements or recharging. Additionally, the combination of wireless energy and information transmissions also raises many new research problems and implementation issues that have to be addressed.
Limited device battery life has always been a key consideration in the design of modern mobile wireless technologies. Frequent battery replacement or recharging is often costly due to a large number of wireless communications devices in use, and even unfeasible in many critical applications, e.g., sensors embedded in structures and implanted medical devices. On the other hand, an efficient combination of wireless energy and information transmissions requires the availability of accurate knowledge of the channel state information at the transmitter. However, this is often difficult to achieve in practice.

The Future[spacer height=”10px”]
In the near future, the communications devices we use will have to become more efficient, affordable for more people, easier to use, and more self-aware. Moreover, our increasing personal and societal dependence on these objects means that we can’t have them running out of batteries at a crucial time and getting lost on us in any way. Additionally, these gadgets must also be affordable and user-friendly. However, there is no shortage of thoughts being put to all of these challenges, and here we take a look at communications advances that are both far out and coming soon.
