Letter from the Editor
"Look Ma, No Hands, No Wires!"Today, most of us take access to Wi-Fi (IEEE Std. 802.11n™) for granted. That’s what makes our daily lives go-around at home, in the office or on the road with access to information across the Internet. Compared to the ‘tethered’ internet access of a few years ago, we became so much more mobile, and productive now having “cut the cord.” But one aspect of our technology usage that is still tied to cords is the need for power even when you have battery operated devices. Think about all of the devices in our lives that require batteries to be recharged: wireless phones, laptops, electric vehicles, medical devices, all the fun wearables and so much more. What if you didn’t need to plug in a device to recharge its battery or what if your device didn’t even need a battery for its power supply? There are a number of standards currently available and in development that support just that through Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) that can allow us to “cut the cord” to traditional power sources.

Student Application Papers
Student application papers applying industry standards are papers submitted by students, or their faculty mentors on their behalf, in which an industry technical standard(s) was applied (analyzed and implemented). Each paper highlights specific design choices in the application of various technical standards and describes the resulting product, process, or service. Click on the title to view the full paper.
