Simultaneous Wireless Information & energy Transfer for low-powered Communication tecHnologies - SWITCH research effort brings together the skills and scientific expertise of four different Cyprus’ research groups in the fields of Communications (UCY/KIOS and OUC) and Antennas/Microwaves (FRC and UCY/ECE) with the profound experience and research calibre of an internationally distinguished research group from UK, (HWU), in order to implement, and experimentally assess, an entirely novel receiver topology for Simultaneous Wireless Information and Power Transfer (SWIPT). In close relation, it also investigates fundamental research problems related to the deployment of Wireless Powered Sensor Networks (WPSNs) and especially the transmitter’s desired characteristics. This proposed research, aims, and is expected to produce high quality publications and suggest technological advancements on topics related to Wireless Powered Communications (WPC).
