Abstract:
Greenhouse Automation Networks (GANs) are an essential part of modern greenhouse operation and are aimed to increase the production efficiency. In this paper, we present a low-cost and real-time greenhouse monitoring system, which allows remote end-users to access agro data through a computer network. Data sources include video signal, air temperature measured with digital thermometers and soil moisture content detected with soil moisture sensors. The priority was to implement a system using a workstation which is accessible through a webpage, to collect and manage real data. Therefore we have developed and evaluated a new “User Interface” aimed to be considerably friendlier to users. The development and testing of the system proved to be satisfactory.
