IoT-Based Smart Irrigation System
In today’s world due to scarcity of non-renewable energy and increasing demand for energy, we require effective and clean energy for this harnessing energy from solar power which is the best way as it is cost effective and can fulfill all our energy needs. Solar-powered smart irrigation systems are the new technology of advance farming method to the Indian farmer. This system consists of solar-powered water pump along with an automatic water flow control using a moisture sensor and mobile device using the concept of IoT. It is the proposed solution for the present energy crisis for the Indian farmers. This system conserves electricity by reducing the load of grid power and saving water by reducing water wastages.
