Patent #: 10,135,294
Pub. Date: 11/20/18
Summary: Embodiments disclosed herein may generate and transmit power waves that, as result of their physical waveform characteristics (e.g., frequency, amplitude, phase, gain, direction), converge at a predetermined location in a transmission field to generate a pocket of energy. An example method disclosed herein includes: receiving, by a transmitter, from a tagging device, a first device tag containing first data indicating a first location of a first receiver. The method also includes: determining, by the transmitter, one or more characteristics of one or more first power waves to be transmitted to the first receiver based upon the first data indicating the first location as contained in the first device tag. The method additionally includes: transmitting, by the transmitter, the one or more first power waves having the one or more characteristics to the first location indicated by the first device tag.
