Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) is a disruptive technology that allows wireless energy provisioning for energy- limited IoT devices, thus decreasing the over-reliance on batteries and wires. WPT could replace conventional energy provisioning (e.g., energy harvesting) and expand for deployment in many of our daily-life applications, including but not limited to healthcare, transportation, automation, and smart cities. As a new rising technology, WPT has attracted many researchers from academia and industry in terms of technologies and charging scheduling within a plethora of services and applications. Thus, in this paper, we review the most recent studies related to WPT, including the classifications, advantages, disadvantages, and main application domains. Furthermore, we review the recently designed wireless charging scheduling algorithms and schemes for wireless sensor networks. Our study provides a detailed survey of wireless charging scheduling schemes covering the main scheme classifications, evaluation metrics, application domains, advantages, and disadvantages of each charging scheme. We further summarize trends and opportunities for applying WPT at some intersections.
