Roses Monitoring System Via Wireless Sensor Network Using Arduino Microcontroller
AbstractPlant monitoring is important to ensure the healthiness of the plant. The right moisture and temperature is crucial for the plant to growth. Roses is one of the plant that needs to be monitored closely, such as the healthiest of the leaves, petals of the roses, moisture of the soil and roses environment temperature. This paper implements an embedded system for rose monitoring. The proposed system consist of two main parts: hardware part and software part. The hardware is equipped with temperature sensor, soil moisture sensor, arduino microcontroller and XBee Wifi Module. XBee Wifi Module will act as an intermediate device to communicate the hardware and software. The hardware components will read the water content in the soil and surrounding temperature then wirelessly transfer the reading to interface from laptop. When the water content level is decrease to certain level the software part will alert and this information will be sent to activate the water pump relay. The proposed system manages to read the water content in the soil and environment temperature. The water pump will be activated when the water content in soil is decrease.
Submission of an original manuscript to the Journal of Computing Technologies and Creative Content (JTeC) will be taken to mean that it represents original work not previoussly published, that it is not being considered elsewhere for publication. All submitted articles that are published by JTeC cannot be published anywhere by the authors unless with the permission by JTeC Editors. JTeC reserves the right to the publications of the articles it published, and reserves the right to reuse the articles elsewhere for academic purposes, while still retaining the names of the original authors with the original articles.
JTeC takes the stance that the publication of scholarly research is meant to disseminate knowledge and in a not-for-profit regime, benefits neither publisher nor author financially. It sees itself as having obligation to its author and to society to make content available online now that the technology allows for such possibility.
