Resumen

The measurement of ultraviolet radiation (UV) at different levels is of particular interest when people are exposed to the sun's apparent movement in order to reconstruct the solar incidence throughout the body. In addition, there are situations, conditions or activities where UV values are particularly high, and then it is necessary to take measurements in a systematic way. This paper reports a joint work performed by the Solar Energy Group of the Institute of Physics Rosario (CONICET – UNR) and the Intelligent Wireless Sensor Networks Group (Facultad de Ciencias Exactas, Ingeniería y Agrimensura – UNR) for the implementation of a Wireless Sensor Network to perform multiple measurements of ultraviolet index (UVI). This work included the physical c nstruction of a prototype sensor node and development of software for network configuration that also allows to collect and store the measured variables.
