-It will also monitor and record habitual & mobile environmental parameters (external/internal), in order to develop power consumption/harvesting profiles which may propose either a change in power usage behaviour or a change in power harvesting methods in order to maximize efficiency and prolong battery live by reducing charge/discharge cycles. In short, all designated house- and station-keeping tasks will be controlled by this unit. It is meant to be always kept powered on, so the power consumption budget of the SKU is very demanding. The Goal was to deploy a system that will not draw more than 1-2W in full system operation mode, the current implementation of the SKU draws **less than 1W**, running Gentoo-Linux, gpsd, chrony, collectd and USB/SD data storage units.+It will also monitor and record habitual & mobile environmental parameters (external/internal), in order to develop power consumption/harvesting profiles which may propose either a change in power usage behaviour or a change in power harvesting methods so that we can maximize efficiency and prolong battery live by reducing charge/discharge cycles.
