Project Description & Impact:
This is an IoT based project designed to assist employees in on-campus greenhouses. There are three main focuses of this project: measuring humidity and temperature, estimating the bug population, and measuring light levels; all of this data will be reported back to the farm manager by sending sensor data via ESP8266 microcontrollers and a Raspberry Pi to the Blynk app.
We hope to increase the efficiency of the greenhouses and reduce the amount of manual work required by employees.
