Inspiration

Agricultural water wastage, and water wastage in gardening and home plants.

What it does

Using a relay sensor, a pump can automatically pour water through a tube into the plant. The relay sensor tells the Arduino when to pump in water when the moisture has decreased to a certain level.

How We built it

We used the Relay sensor to send data to the Arduino, and used a pump connected to a power supply module to pour water into the plant.

Challenges I ran into

It was hard to control the pump with a digital pin, and a lot of trial and error had to happen for us to finally control the pump with code.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Getting the project to work!

What I learned

How to use relay sensors, how to connect a pump to a digital pin, how to use a power module.

What's next for Automatic Irrigation System

We want to make this project more user friendly, so adding an iOt would help. With iOt, we can have a beautiful user interface on a phone app that can ask for water type and soil moisture levels.
