I am looking at an application (monitoring populations of birds) where battery life is important, and most of the time “nothing happens”.
I expect that it is possible to take a single image, perform some processing, and then “sleep”, either with pyb.stop() or pyb.standby(). I understand that pyb.standby() reduces power most, but will take longer to restart.
Are there examples of this low duty-cycle operation, which permit power consumption to be quantified at different sleep periods?
I imagine that there is some sleep period beyond which it is more advantageous to use pyb.standby(), even with the longer wake period. Has this been quantified?
