A Solar Energy Powered Autonomous Wireless Actuator Node for Irrigation Systems

Article, Other literature type English OPEN
Lajara, Rafael; Alberola, Jorge; Pelegrí-Sebastiá, José;

The design of a fully autonomous and wireless actuator node (“wEcoValve mote”) based on the IEEE 802.15.4 standard is presented. The system allows remote control (open/close) of a 3-lead magnetic latch solenoid, commonly used in drip irrigation systems in applications s... View more
