Abstract

In this paper, the feasibility of a single integrated autonomous device equipped with WiFI capability is analyzed, discussing its potentiality in the framework of the Internet of Things and Cyber Physical Systems. By equipping photovoltaic panels with sensors and antennas, it is possible to obtain a single stand-alone wireless network node. Specifically, integration of a number of antennas in a large solar panel is suitable to obtain an integrated antenna array. Thus, beamforming techniques can be implemented to electronically orient the array maximum gain radiation, so improving the point-to-point network link.
