Solar Powered Gravity - Feed Drip Irrigation System Using Wireless Sensor Network

Abstract

A wireless sensor network (WSN) to automatically irrigate the crops using soil moisture content values obtained from the soil moisture sensor is designed. Gravity-feed drip irrigation is actuated according to the needs of the crop by using a relay to on a solenoid valve when the soil is dry, which is determined by soil moisture content below 60%. End devices communicate with the Coordinator via XBee communication links. 
