Title

Technical Papers Parallel Session-VI: Automation and monitoring of greenhouse

Abstract/Description

Recent era has brought upon a major global food shortage due to the climatic changes in the world. So in order to deal with this issue of global food shortage households must need to grow a reasonable deal of vegetables and other crops using artificial greenhouses. An artificially controlled greenhouse yields more crops per square meter compared to open field cultivation since the microclimatic parameters that determine crop yield are continuously examined and controlled to ensure that an optimum environment is created. This research paper addresses and tries to resolve a few issues that are faced by plants caretakers using the engineering approach so that he/she could remain satisfied even when he/she is physically away for a long duration of time because the automated system will take care of everything in the absence. This automated system works using sensors and actuators, which are controlled by a microcontroller and monitor and manage every environmental parameter required for the good growth of plants.
