Long-Duration Solar-powered wireless sensor networks
Corke, Peter, Valencia, Philip, Sikka, Pavan, Wark, Tim, & Overs, Les (2007) Long-Duration Solar-powered wireless sensor networks. In Proceedings of the 4th workshop on Embedded networked sensors EmNets 2007, ACM, University College Cork, Cork, Ireland, pp. 33-37.
This paper discusses hardware design principles for long-term solar-powered wireless sensor networks. We argue that the assumptions and principles appropriate for long-term operation from primary cells are quite different from the solar power case with its abundant energy and regular charging cycles. We present data from a long-term deployment that illustrates the use of solar energy and rechargeable batteries to achieve 24x7 operation for over two years, since March 2005.
