GSM Based Agriculture System
Farming is an activity that depends heavily on the conditions that are existent in the environment surrounding the agricultural field. The work of the farmers is affected by the natural conditions such as climate, topography, etc. and also by other anthropogenic elements. This project proposes to develop a system that makes use of GSM and SMS technologies to allow for remote access to the agricultural motor, thereby making a farmer’s work much easier and less dependent of the conditions present.
This project implements the emerging applications of GSM technology. Using GSM networks, a control system has been proposed that will act as an embedded system which can monitor and control an agricultural motor and other devices locally using built-in input and output peripherals.
Remotely, the system allows the user to effectively monitor and control the agricultural motor via the mobile phone set by sending commands in the form of SMS messages and receiving appliances status. The main concept behind the project is receiving the sent SMS and processing it further as required to perform several operations. The type of the operation to be performed depends on the nature of SMS sent. The principle in which the project is based is fairly simple. First, the sent SMS is stored and polled from the receiver mobile station and then the required control signal is generated and sent to the intermediate hardware that we have designed according to the command received in form of the sent message.
