Agricultural sensor device which can store power from energy harvesting sources, drive wireless data communication and can withstand harsh weather conditions.
Digital transformation of agriculture by sensing and monitoring.
Photovoltaic powered smart agricultural sensor device.
Smart agriculture that makes full use of advanced technology is considered as an effective method to achieve labor-saving and efficiency improvement, such as accurately predict crop growth and preventing disease. However, most conventional agricultural sensor devices require power cables or uses non-rechargeable batteries which caused problem in the field.
The combination of EnerCera battery, together with ultra low power RE MCU from Renesas Electronics enables minuscule and intermittent power obtained from power source, such as solar cells, to be stored effectively. High power, high capacity EnerCera battery can be used for sending data over wireless communication and for many other functions. The EnerCera battery with its wide temperature operating characteristics make it optimum choice for the power source for smart agricultural sensor devices.
