Abstract

Our team’s project focuses solely on a way to provide Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University with an environmentally healthy and green way to conduct irrigation on campus with the use of smart sensors.

We have researched and analyzed different smart sensor irrigation systems that monitor and measure items such as: soil moisture, temperature, and dew point. The university could save a large amount of money and water by switching to a smart irrigation system whose sensors would be capable of detecting when the ground and plants need water. Ultimately we are trying to focus on conserving water and applying it to the areas that need it at a desired time. In addition to conserving water, applying a smart sensor irrigation system also provides optimal conditions for plants, which can extend the lifetime of a bed, and field, which in the end minimizes maintenance efforts.
