This 5G Wave Harvesting Antenna Captures Power from the Network
The launch of 5G networks into cities both in North America and around the world is taking place now to transform connectivity, but this newly designed 5G wave harvesting antenna could further enhance capabilities.
The 3D-printed antenna has been developed by researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology and would capture millimeter waves from 5G towers to provide power to a range of solutions. This could reduce the strain on the electrical grid by harvesting the power of the network and even further help with the evolution of the smart city as more connected infrastructure begins to show up in our communities.
The 5G wave harvesting antenna maintains a credit card-sized design and identifies the limitless possibilities of the technology in the near future.
