1. A method for wireless power transmission, comprising:

  • determining, by a transmitter, whether to transmit one or more power waves to a receiver location along a transmission path by comparing a receiver location and a path of the one or more power waves with a stored location of an entity to be excluded from receipt of the power waves;

    measuring, by one or more sensors of the transmitter, power levels in a transmission field of the transmitter, the transmission field including the receiver location and the entity; and

    upon determining that the entity to be excluded is not at the receiver location and not in the path and (ii) a measured power level at the receiver location does not exceed one or more permissible power levels for safe wireless power transmission, transmitting, by the transmitter, the one or more power waves along the path to converge at the receiver location.
