In light of my broken foot, I have decided to tackle a project of a wireless field monitoring, I am going to start small and focus just on the monitor nodes. However, Figure 1 does so the overall plan including the monitor node, mother node and water solenoid node.
|Figure 1: The big plan|
Show in Figure 2 below, is the monitor node which will have the following sensors to report key field parameters.
|Figure 2: Monitor node diagram|
- Light intensity sensor
- Air temp sensor
- Soil temp sensor
- Soil moisture sensor
The monitor will also have the ability to communicate wirelessly. Ultimately, the wireless connectivity will be used to communicate to other nodes and to a mother node. The input list that was previously posted is for the monitor node. That will have another revision coming fairly soon.
