Abstract
Insufficient watering can cause plants to wilt and even die, overwatering will produce similar serious problems. In addition, irregular watering can lead to the death of some plants, or to result in a poor crop. Therefore, the amount of watering is essential to ensure the production of healthy fruits and vegetables. For most people who love flowers, they do not have a full day to take care of their plants, as they have to go to work during daytime and can only water their plants at night. Sometimes due to the intense workload, people are too tired to even water the flowers when they get home.  There are also circumstances where people cannot water their plants because they will be away from home for days. These situations will lead to the unhealthy growth of plants.To help with those issues, our team came up an idea to make the watering process "smart". Our goal is to design an automatic watering system, which will use two sensors: Humidity sensors, to examining the soil moisture and temperature sensors, to sense the temperature of the surrounding environment. The data collected from these two sensors are sent to web server via a wireless connection, and the data can be accessed through a web application. After analyzing the data through the web application, the watering schedule can be determined and automatically executed. Therefore, even if you are not able to water your plants on time, our system will help you water the plants when necessary. You no longer have to worry about your plants.
