PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The goal of this project is to develop an automatic irrigation system which switches the pump motor on/off on sensing the moisture content of the soil. Advantage of using this method is to reduce human intervention and to ensure proper irrigation.

This project uses an 8051 series microcontroller which is programmed to receive input signal of varying moisture condition of the soil through the sensing arrangement. This is achieved by using an op-amp as comparator that acts as interface between the sensing arrangement and microcontroller. Once the controller receives this signal, it generates an output that drives a relay for operating the water pump.

An LCD is also interfaced to the microcontroller to display the status of the soil and water pump. Sensing arrangement is made by using two stiff metallic rods inserted into the field at a certain distance. Connections from the metallic rods are interfaced to the control unit.

This concept in future can be enhanced by integrating it with GSM technology, such that whenever the water pump switches on/off, an SMS is delivered to the concerned person regarding the status of the pump. We can also control the pump through SMS.
