Smart-Solar Irrigation System (SMIS) for Sustainable Agriculture

Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS,volume 942)

Abstract

This study seeks to develop an automated solar-powered irrigation system. This will provide a cost-effective solution to the traditional irrigation method. This project is aimed at designing a system that harnesses solar energy for smart irrigation and allows for more efficient way to conserve water on the farmland. The system developed is portable and is designed to be adaptable to existing water system. The system incorporates wireless communication technology established using NRF module. For easy operations, the system can be controlled via an Android app-enabled with Bluetooth network. The user experience allows selection of either manual control for scheduled irrigation or automatic control using wireless sensors.
