Towards Future Smart Plant Sensing System


This project is about continuing the work of the previous research: Wireless Sustainable Sensor Node (WiSSeN)

Towards highly integrated and self-sustained plant's health sensing system to enable precision farming.

Project results
  • Improve the modular wireless sensor open platform (Free License) developed in the predecessor of this project.
  • Extend the previous feasibility study and develop prototype of non-destructive plant’s health sensing during respiration and photosynthesis.
  • Feasibility study and prototyping of low-cost air flow sensors.
  • Develop a concept design for data collection in the cloud to use AI (deep learning, machine learning) algorithms to gain more insight about plant’s health from the collected data.
