Garden irrigation system, garden monitoring system and other garden systems are related to the plant’s care method. For examples, the garden irrigation system uses a solenoid valve to implement auto-watering plants that drip slowly to the roots, while garden monitoring system sends data such as soil moist level and a warning message to the user whenever the plants need water.
However, the system is not water-saving and cost-ineffective because the price of these systems is very expensive in the market. Therefore, this project will propose an intelligent water-saving irrigation system in wireless sensor network environment which manages to intelligently control plants watering rate that can be work manually and automatically depending on the condition of soil humidity. Thus, improve the weakness of the previous system. The proposed project also guarantees low-price by adopting Arduino UNO with multi-sensors such as soil moist sensor and light sensor.
In addition, this project will cover a small and large area of garden with the aid of the Internet of Things (IoT) utilizing FAVORIOT IoT Cloud platform and Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). Both fundamental will benefit human lifestyle in the future and both developments in our agriculture system will smooth the working environment in this field, reduce the cost of hiring workers and water efficient during irrigation.
