This is the mini project designed to control Plant watering using a standard TV remote. IR sensor is interfaced to the control unit for sensing the IR signals transmitted by the remote. This data is conveyed to the control unit which switches the DC water Pump on or off as desired. An 8051 series microcontroller is used in this project as controller. The 8051 controller receives IR signals sent from the remote using IR module and then operates the motor to achieve the desired plant watering.
Hence with this mini project one can water the plant easily only by pressing some buttons on his TV remote.
