Smart Irrigation System

This project is based on the AEIOU heuristic framework of Design Engineering Approach. Design for Performance, Safety and Reliability is ensured in terms of segregation of the low voltage and the high voltage parts of the circuit. Design for Manufacturability and Assembly is ensured in terms of compact sensors that can be installed within the fields. Design for Aesthetics and Ergonomics is achieved in terms ...
