1. Introduction

1.1 Purpose of the requirements document

The Software Requirements Specification (SRS) is a communication tool between stakeholders and software designers. It gives a description of the software’s purpose and functionality. In other words, the SRS is a document that captures complete description about how the system is expected to perform.

1.2 Scope of the product

The project consist of upgrading a classic greenhouse to retrieve live information about its climate. This information should be available for the farmer to view locally on a screen.

1.3 Definitions, acronyms and abbreviations

  • Greenhouse: an area, usually chiefly of glass, in which the temperature is maintained within a desired range, used for cultivating tender plants or growing plants out of season.
  • LoRa: Long Range and low energy radio RF technology developed by Semtech. It's an open-source technology.

1.5 Overview of the remainder of the document

We'll then dive deeper into specification and requirements of the project.

2. General description

2.1 Product perspective

  • The aim of this projet is equip to equip multiples farms, not only one greenhouse.
  • This project may become a flagship project for ST MicroElectronics

2.2 Product functions

At the end, product should return:

  • The air temperature
  • The air moisture
  • The soil moisture

And display these data on a local graphic interface (dashboard).

2.3 User characteristics

  • Even though those specifics farmers in St Cassien are (former) engineer, we should assume no technical background from the users to be able to use this systems for others farms.
  • Users are busy enough with their activity, we shouldn't assume they have time for complex deployment and maintenance.

2.4 General constraints

  • The energy source : There is no power near of the greenhouse, consequently we'll use a battery.
  • Duty Cycle : We can use only 1% of the time in order to comply with the law.
  • Sensors needs to be moveable : Vehicles should be able to move along the greenhouse.
  • Easy deployment : we aim to provide an easy way of setting up the systems :
    • Via an easy sets of instructions (tutorial)
    • And/or by using a docker image, containing all the necessary (dependencies and configurations).

2.5 Assumptions and dependencies

  • We assume that the farm itself will have no (or not long) power outage.
  • We assume that the battery will provide enough energy for a time span.

3.Specific requirements, covering functional, non-functional and interface requirements

  • document external interfaces,
  • describe system functionality and performance
  • specify logical database requirements,
  • design constraints,
  • emergent system properties and quality characteristics.

3.1 Requirement X.Y.Z (in Structured Natural Language)

Function: Sensors' measures access.

Description: The farmer need to be able to view the measurements on a screen at any time.

Inputs: Measurements and data from the sensors (Humidity of air/soil and ambiant temperature).

Source: NUCLERO-L073RZ

Outputs: Visual graph on the screen, using graphana visualization.

Destination: Raspberry's InfluxDB

Action: Visualization

Non functional requirements: Acceptability / maintainability

Pre-condition: All equipments are powered and properly working.

Post-condition: Same state as pre-condition

Side-effects: None (visualization is a "passive" action)

4. Product evolution

In this iteration we aim to provide a local data viewer. Other groups are working towards an online dashboard solution. It might be interesting to group all this data on the same online virtual machine.
