Abstract

This paper explores how to schedule energy to optimize the information freshness in wireless powered communication networks (WPCNs) when considering channel interference among adjacent sensor nodes. We introduce Age of Information (AoI) to quantitatively evaluate the information freshness and formulate the AoI optimization problem. Unlike prior works focusing on system optimization for WPCNs while ignoring channel interference in energy transfer, this work reveals situations where channel interference among adjacent sensor nodes cannot be neglected and explores optimizing information freshness with interference consideration. To take the phenomena into account, we propose an energy scheduling solution to detect the channel interference and then judiciously determine the energy and time allocation for individual sensor nodes to improve the AoI performance as well as the system throughput. We implement a multi-node WPCN testbed to validate the functional correctness of the proposed solution, and extensive experiments have demonstrated the effectiveness of the proposed solution. The experimental results show that the proposed solution can reduce the average AoI by 54.7% and the average throughput by 49.8% on average compared to the state-of-the-art solutions.
