Indoor farming/gardening is the future for agriculture, where we don’t need vast lands for agriculture. Gardening and farming can be done easily and even better using smart grow chambers that monitor and supply the plants with all necessary ingredients for proper growth. So here we design a 3 layer indoor farming/gardening unit using programmable hydroponic system.
Hydroponic farming is farming done without the use of soil. Our system makes use of smart water supply and draining system coupled with air flow and artificial sunlight for a perfect grow environment. Our system would allow for all weather indoor farming as and when needed for organic food grown indoors.
- The system makes use of sensors to monitor temperature, moisture and water level in the grow chamber.
- The temperature is range and required moisture level can be programmed by the user in the system.
- The system monitors these parameters and operates the fans to maintain required temperature and moisture in the chamber.
- The system then uses the water sensors to check level of water in the system, the pump motors pump water into system or remove excess water from the system as and when needed.
- The artificial sunlight is switched on and off automatically as instructed by user to maintain proper temperature and get desired light for plant growth.
- The onboard water tank is used to maintain water supply and sounds a buzzer when system is out of water.
- An onboard controller circuit is used to run the entire setup as programmed by user.
Thus the system provides a fully automatic method to monitor and bolster plant growth by ensuring perfect plant growth conditions as programmed by user.
