How WiGL Works?
Modern telecommunications technology has advanced so rapidly that we rarely stop to think of how we rely on our devices every day.
HISTORY: Starting with the first telegraph in the 1800s, the relationship between electrical power and data transfer has always been intertwined. In 1901, when Guglielmo Marconi demonstrated the ability to send wireless telegraph data, the field of radar evolved from the field of electricity.
The next century of radio and radio frequency (RF) usage would see amazing advances. While the field of electrical current usage would remain largely unchanged. During the 21st century, wireless data transfer would expand to cover every sector of the RF spectrum and AC or DC current power would be seen as a resource to support radio and RF data transfer.
Radio Advances Hold the Key to WiGL.
The key to enabling WiGL is a look back at the start of electricity as the source for RF data transfer. Meaning, an understanding of what, where, and how radio and RF have advanced and been used to send a wireless signal.
Understanding RF Advances
To understand wireless energy we must start with "what is wireless".
The universe (or more commonly called physics) has a set of basic universal rules that apply to everything. Specific to wireless energy transfer, the underlying universal rule is "the rule of resonance" or in layman's term...vibration.
A wireless RF signal is simply a vibration wave sent through the air. Telecommunications is when a message or code is or is put into that vibration wave. The vibration wave is transmitted (Tx) on one end, amplified and received (Rx), and decoded on the other end.
RF is Waste
Since the RF wave follows the universal rule of resonance then by their very nature the 360 degree RF wave is waste. Meaning >50% of the energy is lost due to the wave traveling in all directions.
Since RF follows the universal rule of resonance, by its very nature, RF is waste. Meaning >50% of the energy is lost due to the wave traveling in all directions. Take for example a cellphone or cellphone tower transmitting RF, the RF is Tx in all directions and absorbed by the user, walls, trees, cars...everything.
RF Energy Harvesting
The focus of many of today's wireless energy pioneers is RF harvesting. RF harvesting builds on the concept that greater than 50% of all resonance (RF signals) is lost or wasted. RF harvesters are attempting to find and convert the wasted portions of energy and turn that RF into wireless electrical power. This exciting area of technology traces back to Tesla's 1891 Coil model and holds tremendous promise in the field of wireless power harvesting.
But as you can image, harvesting random signal in space relies solely on a resonance signal being present. Or in some cases, wireless energy pioneers are generating RF...in all directions ... and harvesting as much as they can convert from their wireless "hot spots".
WiGL Energy Harvesting
While WiGL also relies on the theory of wireless energy harvesting, we're moving towards the next generation of telecommunication capabilities. WiGL posits that random harvesting of signal in space in not optimal. In a world where cellphones, telecommunications microwave shots, and point-to-point (P2P) or point-to-multi-point (P2MP) are now being used to optimize when, where, and how we send wireless telecommunications data, WiGL sees a return to basics as the future of wireless electricity.
Meaning, the future of wireless electricity starts with a return to how wireless energy started and brings these divergent fields back together.
WiGL uses basic data routing structures to bridge the gap between wireless electrical and wireless data transfer. Relying heavily on building the structure needed to create AdHoc wireless electrical Local Area Networks (LAN), Personal Area Networks (PAN) and Wide Area Networks (WAN). WiGL suggests sending very directed P2P and P2MP data to devices that need power. This subtle but critical difference is key.
WiGL uses assumed lost, wasted, or intentionally sent data messages in a totally new way. AdHoc wireless electrical LANs, PANs or WANs manage when, where and how power is needed and directs harvest-able data messages towards a specific device.
Think of WiGL this way, we send a cellphone signal or RF message directly toward a device to optimize energy harvesting. With this new and exciting routed wireless electrical LAN capability, WiGL can also communicate with devices on its networks to share power device-to-device.
By sending directed P2P or P2MP data messages to designated users, WiGL sees tremendous growth and application in the area of electrical resonance management.
With 1st Generation WiGL, we've seen it convert AC-to-RF, whereby the RF messages have been sent through amazing distances. These two-way RF messages have been amplified, Rx and decoded with a portion of the data used for routing and system health. The other portion of the RF data was used for RF-to-DC harvesting.
A basic data message, with a command to "convert to DC".
The same way large amounts of data can be sent and drains a mobile battery, WiGL has discovered that large amounts of data can be routed and targeted towards a device to give it power or battery recharging.
