Solar Powered Gravity-Feed Drip Irrigation System Using Wireless Sensor Network

Angelina M. Y. Ho, Hawa Ze Jaafar, Ionel Valeriu Grozescu, and Muhammad Zaharul Asyraf Bin Zaharin
Abstract—A wireless sensor network (WSN) to automatically irrigate the crops using soil moisture content values obtained from the soil moisture sensor is designed. Gravity-feed drip irrigation is actuated according to the needs of the crop by using a relay to on a solenoid valve when the soil is dry, which is determined by soil moisture content below 60%. End devices communicate with the Coordinator via XBee communication links.

Index Terms—Sensors, wireless, irrigation, solar power, ZigBee.
