A Smart Garden System with a Dual-Axis Solar Tracker
This paper designs a smart garden system to overcome the hassles associated with manual watering, to reduce the maintenance required for the garden system, and to automate this watering process. The Arduino, relays, sensors, valves, pumps used in this standalone garden system are all powered by a dual-axis solar tracker system. Fritzing software is used to develop a printed circuit board for the smart garden system to improve the aesthetics and to reduce the number of connections from the Arduino. A prototype of this garden system is developed with the main advantages of easy installation, reduced maintenance, water conservation, and need-based garden watering.
