1. A wireless power transmission management system, comprising:

  • one or more servers coupled to one or more transmitters via one or more networks,each respective transmitter of the one or more transmitters comprising an antenna array and configured to;

    transmit radio frequency (RF) power waves at a particular time, via the antenna array, to constructively interfere near a location of a receiver in a three-dimensional space in response to determining (i) that the receiver is authorized to receive wireless power from the respective transmitter and that (ii) a charging schedule indicates that the receiver should receive wireless power at the particular time;

    receive device data from the receiver, wherein the device data includes data used to determine the location of the receiver and data that indicates a battery level for an electronic device coupled to the receiver, andtransmit transmitter data and the device data to the one or more servers; and

    the one or more servers configured to;

    receive the transmitter data and the device data from the respective transmitter via the one or more networks; and

    generate, based on (i) the received device data and (ii) the received transmitter data, the charging schedule for the respective transmitter that specifies the particular time at which wireless power should be transmitted by the respective transmitter to the receiver.
