Title: TRACKING SURFACE FOR DETERMINING OPTIMAL CHARGING POSITION
Abstract:
The present disclosure describes a methodology for tracking position and orientation of one or more electronic devices, which may receive charge through wireless power transmission based on pocket-forming. This methodology may include one transmitter and at least one or more receivers, being the transmitter the source of energy and the receiver the device that is desired to charge or power. The transmitter may identify and locate the device to which the receiver is connected for subsequently charge and/or charge it. In order to increase charging and/or powering of electronic devices, a plurality of sensors may provide information determining the optimal position and/or orientation aimed to receive charge and/or power at the maximum available efficiency.
