Embedded System for Automatic Irrigation of Cardamom Field Using Xbee-PRO Technology
This project proposed an embedded system for automatic mist irrigation for cardamom field, which has a wireless sensor network for real time infield sensing and control of an irrigation system. This wireless system supports the cardamom field which has both plain and slope areas. Too much watering causes diseases to cardamom. This system provides uniform and required level of water for both plain and slope areas and therefore it avoids the water overflow at the slope areas which saves the plant and also water. This system has software for real-time in-field sensing and control of an irrigation system. Field conditions were site-specifically monitored by in-field sensor stations distributed across the field and then wirelessly transmitted to a base station.
