WSN in AgricultureIntroduction: WSN is an acronym for Wireless Sensor Network Each node of the network is called MOTA They communicate among themselves and with a gateway This gateway can be reached from Internet Manufacturers: CrossBow: http://www.xbow.com Libelium: http://www.libelium.com/ http://www.tinynode.com Mesh networks: http://www.tranzeo.com http://www.sensicast.com
WSN in AgricultureAplications: Deployment of such distributed sensor networks offers several advantages: ● Diversity, scalability and higher density as compared to spatial centralized ● Self-organizing robust networks
WSN in AgricultureComponents: The Battery currently have an estimated life of up to 1 year. They are usually Nickel Cadmium batteries. Microprocessor: the speed is often of several megahertz and has a fairly low RAM (about 256 Kbytes to 256 Kbytes RAM and others to EEPROM). The Battery currently have an estimated life of up to 1 year. They are usually Nickel Cadmium batteries. Also used solar panels embedded with specks
WSN in AgricultureComponents (cont.)● The radio: IEEE 802.15.4 and Zigbee (future de facto standard that combines IEEE 802.15.4 and HomeRFLite above) are the most used● Sensors: are becoming smaller, more powerful and consume less energy.● Software: ● Arduino / Processing to control spots ● You can also use the NESC language (similar to the C language) on embedded operating systems like TinyOS.

WSN in AgricultureAplications: Selective harvest opportunity Measuring Vegetation Indices Monitoring Temporal Stability Harvest Variability of quality
WSN en AgriculturaAplicación WEB Posibibility of developing a web application to monitor on a terrain map parameters DIGATIC 1.0 measured Connecting to a database for storing parameters, historical consultation, etc. Integration with statistical computing software such as VESPA Geostatistical analysis by interpolation of the measured points (Kriging)
WSN in AgricultureLimitations: The motes are components of very limited resources: they have a small CPU and limited storage capacity Communication bandwidth, limited. Their lifespan is determined by its ability to conserve energy (not to waste the battery.) Normal state: in hibernation except when making measurements and transmitting the results
