Various reports and studies projects that, by 2020, about to 50 billion devices will be connect to internet of things and the global market value will reach $7.1 trillion, which will give the engineers the opportunity to design solutions to several problems such as healthcare, industry, transportation, agriculture, smart homes, etc.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity which enables these objects to connect and exchange data. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to interoperate within the existing Internet infrastructure.

Sensors are the core of the IoT as its collect the data from the environment and then exchange it with a web cloud server through the network (internet) and then send a response to the things (devices) to take actions.

Most of the devices will be connect wirelessly due to the inconvenience, expense or infeasibility of wiring it, and many of them have size constrains with limited battery space and no power cord, so powering these devices (to achieve several months of functioning) become serious challenge. This paper highlights focusing in this challenge and addressing some solutions by using environmental energy to make IoT self-powered such as solar energy, these will decrease and, in some cases, eliminating their dependence on batteries.
