SELECTING MCU TO CREATE WIRELESS SENSOR NETWORKS IN AGRICULTURE MONITORING AND CONTROL
I am a student pursuing M.E in EMBEDDED SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY, now i am in final year and selected project area in WIRELESS SENSOR NETWORKS(WSN).
Actually I need to create WSN in AGRICULTURE sector.
I need to sense soil moisture, Humidity,atmospheric temperature , co2 percentage i air etc., and need to process this values and need to transmit this values to the control room which would be around 1Km from field. For this application i am planing to use WSN. FOR that purpose I require a MCU and RF transceiver. I found that Zigbee(IEEE802.15.4) is best technology which consumes less power so that WIRELESS SENSOR NODE can work with battery back up to one year and more.
Also i need to create mesh topology between the Wireless sensor nodes so that i can save power. alos i need to install TinyOS on the MCU .
I also attached a picture which would make you under stand more clearly about my project idea sir .
MCU with 128k of flash RAM is enough.
When i gone through TI product list I found that CC2530 has MCU+Zigbee modules in single chip(SoC) does i suites my application or not.
Suggest me which one is best for low power wireless sensor networks i agriculture sector.
I am final year student of E.C .I am making project on wireless sensor application for agriculture.
so please shre your idea with me.I am planing to make wireless node using ez430-2500 and ez430-2500T module using MSP430 micro controller.
Please Tell me what sensors you are sensing and for what application?
