Development of Energy Efficient WSN Protocol for Precision Agriculture

Kumar, Ganit (2015) Development of Energy Efficient WSN Protocol for Precision Agriculture. MTech thesis.



To meet the flaws associated with the traditional precision agriculture such as poor real-time data acquisition, smaller monitoring area, excessive manpower requirement, wireless sensor network (WSN) based precision agriculture has come into play. Proper agricultural practices result in good yield. These agricultural practices include varying crops and crop production techniques under different conditions. These conditions are soil moisture content, soil texture, etc.. A Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is established with sensor nodes buried inside the soil to transmit the sensed data to the sink node or base station. Existing protocols are studied for their possibility for implementation into precision agriculture in this paper. A new protocol is proposed which imbibes the good features of both clusters and trees that enhances the network life time by reducing the per node energy consumption and maintains balance between energy consumption and energy disparity
