Agricultural Monitor Blueprint

A partnership with Helium

Build a crop monitor for tracking plant moisture.

Problem
Unpredictable weather patterns, new plant types, and other factors can make it difficult to stay on top of the conditions required for different varieties of crops. If farmers and enthusiasts had an 'always-on' eye on their plants and crops, there’d be less wastage due to easily-rectified factors like water and acidity.
Solution
Build a smart farm solution to keep an eye on a plant’s water status with a moisture sensor, Helium Element and Atom shield, Arduino Uno and a serverless Twilio Function. By the end of the Blueprint, you’ll be able to scale this agricultural monitoring solution to more plants, sensor types, or levels of automation.
