Growing Plants with the Power of Robotany
The goal of this project was to create a digital system to monitor the growth of a plant and regulate the environmental variables to optimize growing conditions. An Arduino system was used to read light, temperature, humidity, and soil moisture data, and to control a light source and a water source. A camera attached to the Arduino took pictures of the plant, which the server program analyzed to determine the health of the plant. It considered factors such as height of the plant, color, number of leaves, and size of leaves. The data was sent via Wi-Fi connection to a desktop restful server ...
