Full-Duplex Machine-to-Machine Communication for Wireless-Powered Internet-of-Things Conference Paper uri icon


  • 2016 IEEE. This paper considers machine-to-machine (M2M) communication for wireless-powered Internet-of-Things (IoT) based networking systems. Motivated by the observation that transmitting signals generally requires more energy than receiving signals for most IoT-based systems, we study a special wireless-powered M2M communication system in which the receiver can send its surplus energy to the transmitter. We propose a framework of wireless powered full-duplex M2M communication (WP-FD-M2M) in which the energy transfer from the receiver to the transmitter and the data transmission from the transmitter to the receiver take place at the same time over the same frequency. We establish a stochastic game-based model, referred to as the M2M game, to characterize the interaction between autonomous M2M transmitter and receiver. We prove that, if the transmitter and receiver can sequentially optimize their data transmission and energy transfer based on the Markov strategy, it is possible to achieve the maximum long-term performance for M2M communication without a centralized controller or coordination between the transmitter and receiver. Numerical results show that our proposed approach can significantly improve the performance for M2M communication under various situations.
