Abstract

Directional wireless power transfer (WPT) technology provides a promising energy solution to remotely recharge the Internet of things sensors using directional antennas. Under a harvest-then-transmit protocol, the access point can adaptively allocate the transmit power among multiple energy directions to maximize the social welfare of the sensors, i.e., downlink sum received energy or uplink sum rate, based on full or quantized channel gains reported from the sensors. However, such power allocation can be challenged if each sensor belongs to a different agent and works in a competitive way. In order to maximize their own utilities, the sensors have the incentives to falsely report their chan..
