in the age of technology, where everyone is running against time not having time to even care about their surroundings and the nature. In an attempt to solve the problem of taking care of plants even at the time of rush hour, I made an electronic circuit that monitors the moisture levels in the soil and waters the plants accordingly. Materials used : 1. Intel edison seed kit/Arduino uno board 2. Arduino extension board 3. Moisture sensor 4. Connecting wires 5. TIP 122 Transistor 6. IN 4007 7. Water pump
Theory: Automated watering of potted plants with Intel Edison... A Moisture Sensor detects the low moisture content of soil and activates the water pump or the solenoid valve which controls the flow of water. When the required water is pumped to the plants, the sensor automatically stops the pump / solenoid valve. It is a recursive process.
