This MONITORING OF AN AEROPONIC GREENHOUSE WITH A SENSOR NETWORK  project describes the sensor node was developed   using off-the-shelf components and consists of sensors, a micro-controller and a low-powered Zigbee module .

The objective of this 2012 Embedded System Final Year project is to design a simple, easy to install, microcontroller-based circuit to monitor and record the values of temperature, sunlight of the natural environment that are continuously modified and controlled in order to optimize them to achieve maximum plant growth and yield.

The controller used is a low power, cost efficient chip manufactured by NXP of on-chip memory It communicates with the various sensor modules in real-time in order to control the light, aeration and drainage process efficiently inside a greenhouse by actuating a cooler, fogger, dripper and lights respectively according to the necessary condition of the crops. Here the data can be read through the wireless ZIGBEE.

Software & Hardware Requirements:

Embedded ‘C’ Programming Language, Keil Software, Flash magic Software, LPC2148  32 Bit microcontroller

APPLICATIONS:Used for growing the plants in safe manner in the green house.

ADVANTAGES: Economical, portable and a low maintenance solution for greenhouse applications.
