Short summary
An original platform embedding multiple sensors and an energy harvesting unit is described. It is versatile and requires little or no maintenance. Multiple platforms can be connected to a hub device in a wireless sensor network. Emphasis was put on the reduction of power consumption and on the energy harvesting unit. With the addition of a small solar panel the system can be fully autonomous indoors. Characterization of power consumption and a test in real-world operation are presented.
