Research on water-saving irrigation automatic control system based on internet of things Abstract: To improve irrigation water use efficiency, reduce cost of irrigation water, this paper discussed the design of wireless sensor network and Internet technology of farmland automatic irrigation control method. Emphasis on an analysis of the routing protocol of sensor network nodes to achieve the system hardware and software design,middleware, and applications such as mobile phone or wireless PDA of internet of things,will constitute a variety of sensors intelligent network, thus enhancing the overall automation system and monitoring levels.
In daily operation related to watering the plants are the most important cultural practice and the most labor-intensive task. No matter whichever weather it is, either too hot and cold or too dry and wet it is very crucial to control the amount of water reaches to the plants. So, It will be effective to use an idea of automatic plant watering system which waters plants when they need it. To reduce manual activities for the human to watering plant, an idea of plant watering system is adopted. System reports its current states and sends the reminder message about watering plants and to add water to the tank. All this notification can be done by using Arduino GSM shield.
