Abstract

A novel algorithm for smart irrigation system adaptable for both open-field and protected agriculture based on LoRa technology is proposed in this paper. The algorithm suits a networked architecture, in which a central controller is communicating with distributed units of sensors and actuators. Communication within the system units use LoRa devices, where a LoRa is an IoT based technology providing low-power and long-range radio connectivity. Within an agricultural farm, the system can be configured such that it can suit the control of environmental conditions applicable for either an open-field and/or a protected (e.g. greenhouse) agricultures. A database has been developed and designed to comply with the system architecture. The collected data is analyzed and used by the system for automatically adjusting itself to an optimal or semi-optimal performance. At the central control, the user interface offer system monitoring capability, statistics, as well as report generation.
