Peak Power Solar Charger with 6loWPAN connection

by Ralf Schlatterbeck

The OS-domotics iot-austria “Merkurboard” is a small hardware that can be used with contiki-OS for IoT (internet of things) applications. In the application used in the talk, the board was used to control a peak power charger for a lead-acid battery. Voltage from the solar power module, voltage of the battery, and the current to the battery are available as Contiki resources via the constrained application protocol CoAP.

The application serves as an example what is possible with existing IoT frameworks.

The hardware as well as the software are available under Open Source Licenses.
