For long-term space missions the possibility to grow vegetables and fruits inside the spacecraft or in specific living modules is pivotal. The use of indoor greenhouse is a realistic solution. However, the remote monitoring of different control functions of greenhouses remains mandatory. Indeed, this can lead to an increment of the sustainability and can increase product yield. However, a full greenhouse automation needs a continuous monitoring of different key parameters such as humidity, temperature, light intensity, CO 2 concentration, etc. Low consumption wireless sensors networks represent a valuable ally to successfully define in real time how the climate inside and outside the greenhouse is changing. Among different solutions, we propose a wireless sensor network based on nodes composed by autonomous flexible patches equipped with sensors, signal processing unit, energy module and data transmission …
