A Remote Monitoring System for Greenhouse Based on the Internet of Things
School of Instrument Science and Engineering, Southeast University, China
The Internet of Things (IOT) is considered as a great opportunity for the development in the information field nowadays, and has been applied widely in many fields. The IOT can be applied to monitor and control the microclimate factors of greenhouse remotely. In this paper, a wireless monitoring network is designed in the perception layer of the IOT. The nodes are developed based on the Mica2 hardware and the TinyOS software. The LPL (low power listening) technology is adopted to reduce the energy consumption of the relay node which is powered by a solar panel. The ACK (Acknowledgement) mechanism is used in the software to improve the quality of wireless communications. A remote monitoring terminal is developed by using Java technology. The monitoring terminal is easy to operate with good interactivity. The system has been installed in a glass greenhouse. The actual operation results show that the system is stable and reliable, which lays a good foundation for the development of remote control strategies in future.
