Self-powered weather station for remote areas and difficult-access locations

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Monitoring climate change can be accomplished by deploying Internet of Things (IoT) sensor devices to collect data on various climate variables. Providing continuous power or replacing batteries for these devices is not always available, particularly in difficult-access locations and harsh environments. Here, we propose a design for a self-powered weather station that can harvest energy, decode information using solar cells, and is controlled by a programmable system-on-chip. A series of experimental demonstrations have shown the versatility of the proposed design to operate autonomously.
