In the irrigation area automatic system, high-performance embedded micro-controller and low-power technology is used to design the water wireless sensor network. The sensor node gathers the hydrographic information such as water-level, gate position and rainfall. The sink node receives the real-time data; the information center stores and processes those data which are transmitted from the sink node through the GPRS network. The system replaces the wired transmission with the wireless transmission, which reduces the costs in installment and maintenance, and improves the system's reliability and extension. It has better application prospect.
