Abstract
Solar energy radiation measurements are essential in precision agriculture and forest monitoring and can be readily performed by attaching commercial pyranometers to autonomous sensor nodes. However this solution significantly increases power consumption up to tens of milliwatts and can cost hundreds of euros. Since many autonomous sensor nodes are supplied from photovoltaic (PV) panels which currents depend on solar irradiance, we propose to double PV panels as solar energy sensors. In this pap...
