Subject: I-Greenhouse : Serre connectée aquaponie

Supervisors:

  • Nicolas PALIX
  • Didier DONSEZ

Students:

  • Charles MARCHAND (RICM4)
  • Marion PELLICER (RICM4)


Subject summary

Monitor real-life greenhouses for organic and auto-production agriculture with LoRaWAN and SigFox endpoints.

Our objective being to bind this technology to the agriculture and to the greenhouses aquaponiques so that the farmer can get back data which will help him maintain his plants as well as watch his fishes in our case

Materials

Thermometer, barometer, moisture sensor
Pycom
Lopy (LoRa)
Solar panel
Waterproof case
Adafruit Feather 32u4 RFM95 LoRa Radio

Repositories


Week 1 (January 9th - January 15th)

Objectives

  • Discover the project.

Work done

  • Project chose.

Problems faced

  • None so far


Week 2 (January 16th - January 22th)

Objectives

  • Teamwork with Group work with the team in charge of the project on the Serres connectées being given that our two projects are very similar. I let you looking their form of follow-up if you are interested : Projets-2016-2017-Serres connectées.
  • Contact Vincent HIBBON to inquire about the technical needs for a farmer.

Work done

  • Phone meeting with Vincent HIBBON and collection of information.
  • Brainstorming about project's goal.
  • Testing our first arduino program.

Problems faced

  • Define the characteristics of the software: how many bits of information is it necessary to send according to the taken measure ?
  • Calculation of the time of emission which is allowed us + How many bits at the most ?
  • We had thought of a notification's system in case of anomaly => What used method ?


Week 3 (January 23th - January 29th)

Objectives

  • Handling of the components available.
  • UML definition

Work done

  • Communication between our two electronic cards with simple program who simulate measures taken.

Problems faced

Work Done

We didn't do a lot. We faced some problems.

Problems faced

  • We try to make Node-Red functionnal on Windows but we faced some problems with Serial Ports.
  • Once on Linux, our connection with the LoPy didn't work very well.
