The project's embedded technologies provide ambient and mobile interactivity. Through a network of Arduino micro-computers with sensors for soil moisture, temperature, humidity and light the plants are able to "speak" about their environmental wellbeing. For example, they make a sound when the soil is dry and a different one when it's wet. Additional sounds for day, night, humidity and temperature levels are heard over time.
This wireless network connects to the web and is accessible by smartphone. From their device users can remotely monitor environmental data conditions and water plants.
On an ongoing basis we update our Github repository featuring the code we use for the Arduinos and our hardware.
