Too Long; Didn't Read

The project presented here is a reasonably robust, dust-resistant and waterproof experimentation platform, using commercial off-the-shelf components. The module is not designed for low energy consumption, however, after some tweaks, the power consumption can be lowered to a level that is usable for short periods of time, powered by solar energy. Without modifications, deep sleep current measured was 2.8 mA, it leaves much to be desired. The camera will be powered directly from a 3.2 V LiFePO4 battery.
