Distributed Monitoring Systems for Agriculture Based on Wireless Sensor Network Technology

The adoption of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) for wide area environmental monitoring is currently considered one of the most challenging application scenarios for this emerging technology. The promise of an unmanaged, self-configuring and self-powered wireless infrastructure, with a continuously decreasing cost per unit, attracts the attention of both final users and system integrators, replacing previously deployed wired solutions and opening new business opportunities. Agricultural scenarios seem to be one of the most promising application areas for WSN due to the necessity of improving the agro-food production chain in terms of precision and quality.
