Abstract

In this paper, the challenges in remote access to
smart irrigation have been addressed. With the development of
technology, in the last two decades, various smart irrigation
systems (SIS) are developed that work with no or minimum
human intervention. Through SIS is very promising, it does not
get popularity due to given two challenges: - (1) As the smart
irrigation system works in a remote location, providing power to
it is very difficult. (2) Due to remote Installation of SIS, the
farmer can’t track its operation and remain ignorant of the
condition of the farm. This paper addresses the listed challenges.
The contributions of the paper are listed: (1) for remote power
supply, solar panel based system is proposed. (2)For remote
information transformation, an Internet of things (IoT) based
solution is proposed. A prototype has been prepared to validate
the proposed model.

Keywords: Smart irrigation systems (SIS), Internet of things (IoT), Solar panel, Arduino mega 2560, Soil Moisture Sensor, GSM module, Solenoid Valve
