The Internet of Things (IOT) is a network of physical objects or 'objects' embedded with computers, software, sensors, and network communication that allows the capturing and sharing of data by these objects. Agriculture/Horticulture assumes a significant part in Indian economy. Using an Arduino-based microcontroller and sensors, the Solar-Powered Smart Irrigation System aims to provide an IoT solution for automating the watering method. It is an energy-efficient and environmentally friendly device that uses photovoltaic cells to produce electricity and then uses water pumps to supply water to the plants. The watering process is regulated by sensors that measure the moisture content of the soil. When the sensor crosses a threshold value, the device is regulated by the main microcontroller unit. The device also includes temperature and humidity sensors to keep track of the atmosphere in the location. Another sensor is used to track the level of the water tank, which acts as a storage space for the system's water supply. IoT integration allows automatic irrigation to be accessed and controlled remotely via a mobile application and a wireless communication system. These smart irrigation techniques take the place of the conventional irrigation method, reducing the need for manual intervention and errors. The problem faced in farming are water deficiency and high costs. These issues can be resolved using new system called smart automated irrigation system. Because this system has 3 different sensors like temperature, soil moisture and luminosity. These sensor senses the soil level when moisture of the soil is less than the expected level, the water is pumped to the crop to make it moisture.
