The IoT Solar Harvester transmits sensor data using a WiFi connection. It is powered by solar energy, which is gathered and managed by an energy harvester (LTC3106) that powers the IoT sensor and stores excess energy into a rechargeable battery, to be used when the solar panel doesn’t provide enough power.
