Solar-Powered Microcontroller Board

Posted June 19, 2015

Autonomo is the Arduino-compatible microcontroller board powered by a small solar panel. It uses the new Atmel Cortex M0+ 32bit microcontroller, with computing power which is comparable to the first Mac. It is designed  to be autonomous (self-sufficient) powered by a smartphone sized solar panel.


The Autonomo is designed with a modular approach, allowing to choose the communication module with added a Bee slot you can choose from a range of options, including: Wifi, GPRS/2G, 3G, LoRa, SigFox and Bluetooth.


There are created a number of libraries and example sketches on GitHub. The software as open source, to get started quickly and to give something back to the community.  For developers there is a library made to allow you to upload your data to an Orion context broker.

The project campaign is on the Kickstarter and early bird prices are already gone, bu you can still pick it up for $38. Estimated delivery is on October of 2015.
