Poster Information
Abstract: Plants need to be taken care in order to produce more yields. There are important factors like water, soil, air and sunlight to make the plants grow better and make the production of yield increase. However, sometimes, the unfavorable climate such as winter, rainy and drought will happen which involving the plants. This unfavorable climate will affect the growth of plants. It is a difficult work for the farmers to maintain suitable climate and optimize plant's vitality needs in the greenhouse. Engineers like us should come out with a system to control and monitor plant growth where these are found very helpful in greenhouse agriculture. In this work, LED strips are used as the light source besides sunlight. The LED strips will be switched ON and OFF automatically to the plants under different periods. In addition to LED lighting, the watering system is introduced to automatically deliver water to the plants. The soil moisture sensor is used to indicate the dryness condition of the soil either dry or wet. The water pump will stop when the wettability of the soil is reached. Lastly, the other sensor used in the system is the height sensor. It is to measure the height of plants. Here, the observation is based on the physical appearance of plants like the height of the plant. Hence, controlling and monitoring LED lighting, water and height of plant are successfully performed which in the end can be done automatically and can be integrated with Internet of Things.
Summary: Plants need to be taken care in order to produce more yields. There are important factors like water, soil, air and sunlight to make the plants grow better and make the production of yield increase. Engineers like us should come out with a system to control and monitor plant growth where these are found very helpful in greenhouse agriculture. References: NilReport abuse »
