Abstract

My project creation along with my colleague is a self-sustaining greenhouse. The purpose of this project is for an individual to grow several plants with limited involvement. The greenhouse has temperature sensors, humidity sensors, fans, lighting, and a water reservoir. It is controlled and regulated using the sensors to alert a program in LabVIEW when to operate fans or lighting to regulate the heat. The water reservoir also has a sensor to alert the owner when the water level is low and needs to be filled. This is the only physical work that will need to be done by the owner. Besides filling the reservoir the greenhouse can be set for a certain temperature for desired plant growth and simply left alone for days while the plant is completely taken care of.
