We wanted to make Seeeduino Stalker a field data logger surviving from -40C to +85C, waterproof and off grid. When the Stalker v2 got a LiPo battery, solar charger, and a water proof enclosure, it’s taking shape.
See this instructable of arming Seeeduino Stalker
The initial experiment is done in fridge and oven, proven OK but not pushed to the limits. Kevin, our product engineering took one armored stalker back to home town in freezing northeastern China for Chinese new year. It stayed in the wild for 10 days, record down temperature and its voltage every 5 seconds.
To survive in the weather like “2012” or “the day after tomorrow”, this is not enough. We want to find the limitation of Seeeduino Stalker.
