Abstract

The key technology of greenhouse facilities is the monitoring of environmental parameters. Now, monitoring system of greenhouse is based on wire transmission. It is complicated to route wire and difficult to maintain. Also its reliability and anti-interference performance will degrade because of heat, light and acid. This paper leads a low-power and short range ZigBee technique into greenhouse monitoring system. In order to compose intelligent network sensor system, the paper analyses the composition of network nodes power consumption, proposes low-power design method both in hardware and software. The paper selects CC2430 module which composed of transceiver and microprocessor, and use SHT15 temperature humidity sensor. After hardware and software debugging, this wireless network can acquire and transmit data of greenhouse temperature and humidity accurately and rapidly, and this system resistant to stable work, tight structure, large loads and low power consumption.
