Abstract: Sigfox is one of the popular LPWAN technologies used in the Internet of Things. As in the case of many other wireless protocols, Sigfox nodes are mainly powered with batteries, which leads to important maintenance costs and slows down its acceptance. Enabling such systems to work on harvested energy will facilitate their use and acceptance. We designed and tested a Sigfox node that can be powered by a 1 cm2 solar cell, opening the door to further optimization in size and costs. Preliminary tests made at the window of one of our office show that one can transmit tens of message per day with that node.
