Current commercial monitoring and controlling systems for agriculture are too expensive for most farmers in Taiwan, where population in farming sector is shrinking and aging. Further, data about the environment, plant growth, and production are not systematically stored and analyzed to provide a feedback for future planting. The project has completed a design with Internet of Things (IoT) technology for a local greenhouse. Major production factors are selected for controlling and monitoring. Hardware and software is implemented with open sources. The preliminary testing has shown positive results, which promise to bring changes to the experimented site. Moreover, the created model can be easily applied or scaled up in different farming environments with little change and affordable expense.
