A sensor node is a complete modular soil monitoring system with different sensor modules, solar panel and control electronics. It can be deployed in a field for complete crop cycle for monitoring the various parameters of the soil.
What is a sensor node?
How does sensor node work?
Once a sensor node is deployed in a field, it will monitor the various parameters of the soil and periodically send the data. It also generates alerts on mobile "When to irrigate?" and "How much to irrigate?".
How does sensor node help farmer in agriculture?
Once a farmer installs a sensor node in his field, he will get timely alerts for optimum irrigation. Optimum irrigation will help the farmer to save water and improve crop yield.
