Abstract

The constant increase of migration to the urban area has caused that the rural sector not have the manpower for agricultural production and is not able to supply food to the world's population, which has generated the need to expand the crops towards the cities. To encourage agricultural production in urban sectors, the use of technologies capable of automating and increasing production performance is proposed. This paper presents the develop of a system for the measurement, monitoring and automatic irrigation of an urban garden using Internet of Things (IoT) technology, it has sensors of CO2, humidity, luminosity, temperature, detection of plants and a hybrid application for its remote monitoring connected to a local area network. Also, the communication process used here is tested in order to provide a great connection service between the proposed system and the network.
