Abstract

The goal of this project is to create a automated cubic greenhouse where the base and sides contain receptacles for plants which supply nutrients aeroponically. The greenhouse will supply at least 45 receptacles for plants within a 17x17x20 cubic inch area. The cube design will allow more plants to be grown within a compact space then if the base was exclusively utilized. A microcontroller (Funduino Mega 2560) will utilize a temperature sensor, timer, humidity sensor and a ph sensor to facilitate desired changes to the growing space. If the desired conditions for the growing space are not satisfied, then the environment will be manipulated via heat lamp, pump, light strips and/or fans to restore the environment to its desired state. The variables that the user can manipulate via touch screen UI (which determine the desired state of the greenhouse) are area temperature, light duration for a 24-hour cycle, root humidity and nutrient ph.
