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.
