Energy Harvesting Wireless Communications

Professor Sennur Ulukus
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Institute for Systems Research

Wireless networks composed of energy harvesting devices will introduce several transformative changes in wireless networking as we know it: energy self-sufficient, energy self-sustaining, perpetual operation; reduced use of conventional energy and accompanying carbon footprint; untethered mobility; and an ability to deploy wireless networks at hard-to-reach places such as remote rural areas, within the structures, and within the human body. Energy harvesting brings new dimensions to the wireless communication problem in the form of intermittency and randomness of available energy, which necessitates a fresh look at wireless communication protocols at the physical, medium access and networking layers. In this talk, I will summarize recent research results on energy harvesting communication in the fields of communication theory, information theory and wireless networking, and outline several open research problems.


This Event is For: Graduate • Undergraduate • Faculty • Post-Docs • Alumni • Corporate
