IoT application that applied for agriculture

What is it about?

This paper proposes an Internet of Thing system architecture based on Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) for agricultural applications. The system consists of sensor nodes and a gateway, which allows a user to monitor environmental data for agriculture using a web browser. The sensor node is a microcontroller based Arduino including wireless module and connected sensors such as temperature, relative humidity, luminosity, air pressure and other sensors. A WiFi interface is deployed to exchange the environmental information from sensor nodes to the gateway running Linux. The gateway manages and transfers data to a Cloud where data were stored and visualized as graphs

Why is it important?

We have tested the system for long period of time. It can work correctly. The system can be applied in variety of agricultural application. Moreover, the system is very scalable, which make it compatibly for both small and large farm.
