This project shows how to use Simulink Support Package for Arduino Hardware to create a Simulink model to implement a smart plant watering system based on ThingSpeak.
The watering requirements for a plant can be decided by the ideal soil moisture range required for it. If the soil moisture is not in the ideal range then the plant is overwatered or not watered enough. By measuring the soil moisture level, we can decide if the plant needs to be watered. To measure the soil moisture, we will use a soil moisture sensor. The sensor measures the percentage of moisture present in the soil. This project also connects the Arduino to ThingSpeak. ThingSpeak allows you to collect data from sensors and run MATLAB Analytics in the cloud. Discuss this project here.
