Abstract

In agriculture zone, it is necessary to continuously monitor weather conditions so as to plan future activities accordingly. However, using the currently available wired and analog devices may not be easy as well as suggestible as they are very difficult to handle during critical weather conditions. To overcome this problem, we are developing a sensor network, so as to monitor weather changes. Monitoring the weather parameters in agriculture zone is an important aspect of the farming production process. A wireless sensor network is developed as a weather monitoring system for informing farmers about weather changes and provides them with respective guidelines to plan their field. The weather parameters that are being monitored are temperature and humidity. The main aim of the system is to make use of wireless sensor network for sending information over long distances consuming low power. Low power proves to be an advantage,as because of this, the system can be easily installed and managed at locations where hardwiring is impossible or there is no access to electricity. The system put forth in this paper is a well-advanced solution for monitoring the weather conditions at a particular place and make the information available anywhere to the farmers within a click. We are using the technology called Internet of Things (IoT) to connect devices and sensors involved using Internet.
