Design of an Automated Grain Storage Chamber Based on Wireless Sensor Network



The main objective of this paper is to design a monitoring and controlling system for storage of wheat grains. The temperature, humidity, CO2 and O2 gas levels are the main controlling parameters. Sensors are placed inside the chamber to monitor them and the data is analyzed using wireless communication devices. The data of all the sensors is sent to a wireless zigbee coordinator which is again connected to a microcontroller PIC16F877A. Depending upon the output of the sensor, an actuator operates. The design and implementation of this process has been done using PIC microcontroller, Zigbee & LABVIEW software. This paper provides details of sensing, data acquisition, and controlling the storage parameters.
