Emerging Technologies & Future Directions

A thematic element that is always exciting at IMS is the area of emerging technologies and directions. For IMS2024 this refers all new innovations and contributions in RF to THz technologies for our society. Some examples include Wireless power transfer, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Digital Twins, nanomaterials, and quantum technologies.

Emerging Technologies & Future Directions

Wireless power transfer techniques have enabled many novel applications, with the main advantages of being nondestructive and noninvasive, while enabling mobility, convenience, efficiency. Some applications can replace existing solutions, others provide the possibility of previously impossible scenarios. Currently, WPT has been demonstrated for charging vehicles, drones, medical implants, consumer electronics, factory and industrial instruments, mobile sensors, and Internet-of-things (IOT) devices for smart cities.

Research has also been conducted for aerospace, satellite, energy distribution, sensor network, and city infrastructure applications, with one of the most known project being the solar power satellite (SPS) system. These applications are changing the technological landscapes and making significant impacts on our society. Finally, the integration of WPT with communications is known as simultaneous wireless information and power transfer
