Wireless power transfer, Harvesting system, Fabric Integrated
A wireless power transfer and harvesting system integrated with fabric are provided. The wireless power transfer and harvesting system include a transmitter antenna for wirelessly transferring power and a receiver antenna that is operatively coupled to the transmitter antenna to receive the power. At least one of the transmitter and receiver antennas can be formed with an anchor shape to inhibit the effects of lateral and/or angular positional misalignments of the transmitter or receiver antenna upon power transfer efficiency of the system.
