Abstract

Currently, the creation, development and conservation of urban gardens has increased giving way to the development of a great diversity of systems that allow monitoring the resources used in the crops and guarantee a better maintenance and care of them. However, the global climatic changes that have occurred in recent years significantly threaten the production and quality of crops, so it is considered important to study and implement equipment and technologies that allow evaluating and controlling the quality of production. The continuous development of technologies and the accessibility of communication have given way to the creation of systems that use Internet of Things (IoT) that allow the control of urban gardens from a monitoring station or a mobile device. In this research, it is proposed to design and implement a monitoring and irrigation system using the Internet of Things in an urban garden, which allows monitoring the climatic variables: Humidity, temperature and CO2. The results show that the data obtained from manually supervised crops have a growth rate between 10% and 20% weekly while the crops that were controlled by the system have a faster growth between 10 % and 40 % weekly.
