Description/Abstract

Wireless sensor nodes are autonomous devices which sense parameters and communicate them wirelessly. Their independent operation precludes the use of wired power supplies, and energy harvesting is becoming an attractive alternative to batteries. This paper presents the circuit design and embedded software of a photovoltaic power harvesting system for indoor wireless sensor nodes, which delivers energy-awareness and improved efficiency levels.
