PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The project is designed to develop an automatic irrigation system that switches a pump motor ON/OFF by sensing the moisture content of the soil using wireless technology effectively for  agriculture applications through GSM Modem used in sending an SMS on the status.

 In the field of agriculture, use of proper method of irrigation is important. The advantage of using this method is to reduce human intervention and to ensure proper irrigation. The project uses an 8051 series microcontroller which is programmed to receive the input signal of varying moisture condition of the soil through sensing arrangement.

This is achieved by using an op-amp as comparator which acts as interface between the sensing device and the microcontroller. Once the controller receives this signal, it generates an output that drives a relay for operating the water pump.It also sends an SMS to the concerned number using GSM modem. An LCD display is also interfaced to the microcontroller to display the status of the soil and water pump ON / Off condition.

The sensing arrangement is made by using two stiff metallic rods inserted to the agricultural field required to be in control . Connections from the metallic rods are interfaced to the control unit.

 This concept in future can be enhanced by integrating XBEE/Bluetooth technology, such that whenever the water pump switches ON/OFF, the information is sent to a smart mobile phone or XBEE transceiver module regarding the status of the pump.
