The current focus on the low-energy harvesting is driven by autonomous sensor networks. In these applications, an energy harvesting system stores energy in a capacitor and then it is amplified and set in a second storage capacitor or battery for use in the microprocessor. The power is typically used in a sensor and the data stored or transmitted possibly via a wireless network. This research aims to design development and validate a computerized tracking system and remote control capability of harvesting and storage of energy from renewable / alternative sources and uninterrupted power supply for a long time without using battery replacement. The system is designed to operate for five consecutive years without the need for human intervention. The system will comprise one unit very low power, which will be able periodically (adjustable period), or upon request of the user it can emit the specified GPS position information and sensor data into a remote station. The "Unit Positioning 'will exhibit truly autonomous functioning and potential energy savings using alternative sources of energy and very low power consumption so that the lifetime of the system extends to five consecutive years. The tracking unit will be adjusted accordingly on the surface of the container and allow the automatic monitoring minimizing the loss of container and, therefore, enhancing the security of transported goods and the protection of the environment from unnecessary waste and uncontrolled depositing them in unknown locations.
