IoT based Aquaponics Monitoring System
Abstract- Aquaponics is a food production method that combines the traditional hydroponics with aquaculture in a symbiotic relationship that facilitates a sustainable system with necessary input as all the water and nutrients within are re-circulated in order to grow terrestrial plants and aquatic life. This technique of agriculture can possibly replace other traditional methods if brought in use effectually. And when traditional Aquaponics meets the technology, remarkable outcomes could become visible. The IoT based Aquaponics Monitoring system features to monitor pH value, temperature and humidity level, water level using the specific sensors has been done and then after perceiving those values from the sensors, the values were displayed through a 16*2 Liquid Crystal Display as well as on the web by the application of Internet of Things. A new technology, Internet of Things has been introduced that bridges the gap between the physical world and the digital world and that starts with things. To connect the sensors with the internet, the database server and application server can be managed so as to display the information regarding the sensors. In order to introduce technology to the traditional aquaponics system, use of Raspberry Pi microcomputer and Internet of Things in the system has been done.
