Title

DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A SMART GREENHOUSE

Abstract

Abstract

In this thesis, a smart greenhouse design is proposed. The aim of the designed smart greenhouse is to employ less human power and to provide higher efficiency. In the designed system, air temperature, air humidity, soil temperature and soil moisture are measured by sensors. As a result of the analysis of the measurements, the control of mechanical appliances such as ventilation, heating and irrigation are controlled according to the pre-defined rules. Such automation helps us reduce the amount of human power for irrigation and ventilation. Two greenhouses with the same characteristics are used for system comparison: One is controlled by the smart system, while the other is traditionally managed. Common to both greenhouses, human power is used for pruning control, pruning and harvesting. In the traditionally-controlled greenhouse, human power is used for all operations. The crop growth period is shorter in the greenhouse managed by the proposed smart system. The smart greenhouse yields a larger amount of harvest in comparison to the traditional greenhouse. As a future work, many types of vegetables can be cultivated in the same greenhouse
