Internet of Things (IoT) is a smart infrastructure of the unique identification device capable of wireless communication with each other, and human services on a large scale through the Internet. The IoT devices themselves must self-aware and harvest the energy they need from ambient sources. Simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) is a promising new solution to provide an opportunity for energy-restrained wireless devices to operate uninterruptedly. In this paper, we propose a beamforming approach for Internet of Things (IoT) multi-input multi-output (MIMO) SWIPT downlink systems, which minimizes the mean square error (MSE) of the information decode (ID) device while satisfying the energy constraint of the energy harvesting (EH) device. Simulation results are provided to evaluate the performance and confirm the efficiency of the proposed algorithm.
