The project is about connecting plants worldwide and accumulate data (temperature, soil moisture, humidity, image etc) related to their growth. A plant specific profile can be created with the data obtained which can be used by gardeners to monitor and control their garden. This also gives an option to control these parameters remotely e.g. pump water if moisture level is low in soil, switch on the lights if sunlight is less. This has many benefits -
1. Help more and more people adopt Terrace Gardening in urban areas.
2.No need to worry about who will water the plants if people go on vacation.
3.Helps Terrace Gardening vendors and consultant to provide 24x7 support to avid gardeners.
4. It can further be used by farmers to share information on their plant growth process.
5. Retailers can use this information to let consumers know the quality of the product they are buying.
The project was created using Intel Galileo Gen 2 board, Arduino IDE.
