In commercial networks, devices cannot always be plugged into power or have to endure the hardest environment. In this study, we want to build a system to detect boundary cross. After several trials, we came up with a setup with CC2531 that uses solar power to extends the deployment to 3 months. The picture you’re seeing here is the network that was deployed in a backyard.
In this joint work, I was a part of designing and implementing process of the system for boundary crossing detection system using the TI CC2531 and a custom energy harvesting system for long-term outdoor deployment.
