With the proliferation of the Internet technologies billions of devices will be connected and constantly communicating. But how do we power these devices when they are in a remote agricultural field, in a wearable medical device, or embedded in a road pavement?

In the near future your mobile phone will connect to a Wi-Fi node not only to communicate, but also to recharge!​

IDEAS Talks are an opportunity to learn from MSFEA experts about timely topics in engineering, technology, and design. IDEAS 2019 took place at the American University of Beirut on April 18, 2019.​​​
