Last time I fiddled with Arduino, I built Plantstation, a system to ‘care’ for plants.
It kept track of ambient and soil temperature. It also kept track of soil moisture, humidity and ambient light levels. Based on this information, it used relays to manage both irrigation and artificial lights.
What a blast. Thanks to everyone single one of the volunteers and staff at the Orlando Science Center for pulling this off. Amazing.
As promised, here’s the Plantstation slides. That little gear on the lower left allows you to download a copy, enjoy. Feel free to contact with questions, if any, and I’ll do my best to help you out.
This is the third time Maker Faire is in Orlando and looks to be bigger and better and, best, my son and I have an exhibit on the third floor of the Orlando Science Center! We are doing our first arduino project, Plantstation. Come check us out!
Plantstation details coming soon after the show.
