Abstract

This study aims to develop a simple, low-cost, and unpolluting radio energy collector, which can transform the radio in the air into DC (direct current) source to be stored in the super capacity so that the idea of energy conservation can be fulfilled. To verify, the practicality and the feasibility of this convertor, the researchers use the vertical build-up antenna and the rectangular patch antenna to collect the EM wave (electromagnetic wave) emitted from the GSM base station and transform it into the DC source to supply the RFID Active Tag with power. Besides, a 433 MHz, 5W transmitter is used to imitate the device of high –amplitude wave in the indoor or underground parking lots to verify the feasibility of this system. The results indicate that the power, collected in the place about 50cm away from the device of the high –amplitude wave, can replace the battery of the RFID Active Tag.
