Future factories would be based on Industry 4.0 paradigm. Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) represent a part of the solution in this field. As autonomous systems, powering challenges could be solved using energy harvesting technology. In the present research two alternatives energy input and management are combined on a single architecture. A minireactor and an indoor photovoltaic cell as energy harvesters and a double power manager with AC/DC and DC/DC converters controlled by a low power microcontroller. Furthermore, implementation of artificial intelligence techniques, allows a smart and optimal energy management. Finally, integration of these solutions makes IIoT self-powered devices.
