Abstract [en]

This report deals with the development of a wireless sensor system that measures the environmental energy and predicts if energy harvesting could be possible in different areas. It provides an overview over the hardware used to build this system and gives a detailed description of the software implementation of the system. The hardware part presents the microcontroller and platform that is used, as well as the sensors integrated in the system. The software part explains how the used hardware was put together in a program that controls the different components. It explains the possibility to save captured sensor values on an SD card or send them to a remote receiver with an XBee radio module in real time. Also the inclusion of the mbed software library, which provides a lot of useful applications and functions for the project, is an important part. The final part of the report presents the results, showing how the system works.
