Title

Study and development of architectures of radio receivers autonomous in energy and their mechanisms of wake-up and energy harvesting

Abstract

The main scientific challenge of the thesis is to propose an autonomous wake-up radio architecture, i.e. an ultra-low power receiver supplied by the RF harvested or transferred energy and independent from the connected object’s main power supply. More thoroughly, the aim of this subject is to explore new solutions based on autonomous wake-up radio receivers taking into account limitations as size, technologies, operating conditions, etc., in order to provide one (or several) operational prototype(s). The proposed solutions will not exclusively be evaluated and optimized in terms of energy consumption, but also will take into account the communication performance such as the sensitivity and the robustness in terms of false wake-ups.
