This brilliant technology translates the world of signal we’ve built around us into usable power.

ICAP Patent Brokerage announces for sale patents disclosing a system for harvesting ambient radio frequency (RF) or electromagnetic (EM) energy for supplying power to electronic devices, sensors and sensor networks, available from inventor Marc H. Cohen. This portfolio is offered as part of the Internet of Things IP Auction, with a bidding deadline of July 30th, 2015.

“This brilliant technology translates the world of signal we’ve built around us into usable power,” says Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage.

Key Characteristics & Benefits
These patents disclose a system and device for harvesting various frequencies and polarizations of ambient radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic (EM) energy for making a passive sensor (tag) into an autonomous passive sensor (tag), adapted to collect and store data with time-stamping and some primitive computation when necessary, even when an interrogating radio frequency identification (RFID) reader is not present (not transmitting). A specific source of ambient RF EM energy may include wireless fidelity (WiFi) and/or cellular telephone base stations and other microwave sources. The system and device may also allow for the recharging of energy storage units in active and battery assisted passive (BAP) devices. The system could be a “smart building” that uses passive sensors with RF EM energy harvesting capability to sense environmental variables, security breaches, as well as information from “smart appliances” that can be used for a variety of controls and can be accessed locally or remotely over the Internet or cellular networks.

Forward citing companies include Boeing, Intellectual Ventures, GE, IBM, Apple, Tyco, Ricoh, Trilliant, Broadcom, Primax, and Voxx.
