A Novel e-Textile Body-Worn Antenna Array for Wireless Power Transfer and Energy Harvesting
This work proposes an innovative wearable energy harvesting system for wireless power transfer and energy harvesting. The system features a unique e-textile broadband dual-antenna array and a multi-band rectifier. These e-textile antennas are incorporated into a cotton substrate, making them skin-friendly and suitable for extensive body coverage, enhancing the power transfer and energy harvesting efficiency. The proposed system is particularly promising for providing continuous power to body sensors, facilitating various applications in the body area.
