We propose a novel Energy Loss Prediction(ELP) framework that estimates the energy loss in sharing crowdsourced energy services. Crowdsourcing wireless energy services is a novel and convenient solution to enable the ubiquitous charging of nearby IoT devices. Therefore, capturing the wireless energy sharing loss is essential for the successful deployment of efficient energy service composition techniques. We propose Easeformer, a novel attention-based algorithm to predict the battery levels of IoT devices in a crowdsourced energy sharing environment. The predicted battery levels are used to estimate the energy loss. A set of experiments were conducted to demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed framework. We conducted extensive experiments on real wireless energy datasets to demonstrate that our framework significantly outperforms existing methods.
We propose a novel activity-based profiling framework to estimate IoT users' harvested energy based on their daily activities. Energy is harvested from natural sources such as the kinetic movement of IoT users. The profiling framework captures the users' physical activity data to define activity-based profiles. These profiles are utilized to estimate the harvested energy by IoT users. We train and evaluate our framework based on a real Fitbit dataset.
Crowdsourcing wireless energy services is a novel convenient alternative to charge IoT devices. We demonstratepeer-to-peer wireless energy services sharing between smartphones over a distance. Our demo leverages (1) a service-based technique to share energy services, (2) state-of-the-art power transfer technology over a distance, and (3) a mobile application to enable communication between energy providers and consumers. In addition, our application monitors the charging process between IoT devices to collect a dataset for further analysis. Moreover, in this demo, we compare the peer-to-peer energy transfer between two smartphones using different charging technologies, i.e., cable charging, reverse charging, and wireless charging over a distance. A set of preliminary experiments have been conducted on a real collected dataset to analyze and demonstrate the behavior of the current wireless and traditional charging technologies.KeywordsEnergy servicesIoT servicesWireless chargingIoTCrowdsourcingEnergy sharingWireless power transfer
