The wireless sensor node architecture proposed in this paper is optimized for use in a wireless interactive point, listen and see system. In particular, we focus on developing a wireless sensor node that can be remotely charged by harvesting microwave energy. The current system implementation allows a user to access information from a remote sensor via their mobile computing device. These sensors are limited in complexity due to the limited power available, and are cumbersome since manual intervention is required to replace its batteries. We propose a system where battery powered wireless sensor nodes can be recharged by harvesting energy from a microwave Radio Frequency (RF) signal source. The remote power charging module of the wireless sensor node architecture consisted of an antenna array and a rectification circuit. A prototype of the antenna array and rectification circuit of the remote power charging module for the wireless sensor node was constructed and is presented in this paper.
