This Master’s Thesis presents the design and physical implementation of an integrated solar power system for a wireless multisensor network router (U-Flag) installed in urban environments. The U-Flag has been designed by Urbiotica and it is used for smart city applications such as outdoor parking, waste collection and environmental monitoring. After an extensive review of the literature and the realization of an initial prototype, two functional prototypes were implemented and their performance was analysed in different urban scenarios. The results of the tests showed both the optimal behaviour of the system in clear areas and also the effect that nearby objects such as trees or building have on the system’s autonomy. A minimum daily irradiation that guarantee the system’s full-time operation has been finally determined, and several suggestions are proposed to further improve system performance in the future development.
