Abstract -- This paper describes two wireless power
transfer systems. The Wireless Identification and Sensing
Platform (WISP) is a platform for sensing and computation
that is powered and read by a commercial off-the-shelf UHF
(915MHz) RFID reader. WISPs are small sensor devices that
consume on the order of 2uW to 2mW, and can be operated
at distances of up to several meters from the reader.
The second system harvests VHF or UHF energy from TV
towers, with power available depending on range and
broadcast transmit power. We report on an experiment in
which 60uW is harvested at a range of about 4km.
Index Terms -- Wireless Power Transfer, UHF RFID, RF
