Solar-powered Hydroponics Project

My solar-powered hydroponics project is employing an Arduino Uno microcontroller, a DHT11 humidity/temperature sensor, a Seeed Studio Relay Shield, a Seeed Studio SD Card Shield, a PH Shield by Dormant Labs, a solar resistor, an AT24C32 Real Time Clock (RTC) Module, a SunWize OEM20, 20 watt solar panel, a 12V/6A Solar Charge Controller, Morningstar SunSaver 6, and a DDC-1 12V, 10 watt CPU cooling pump.

The Uno is the controller for the whole system.

The DHT11 humidity/temperature sensor is used to monitor and log the ambient temperature and humidity.

The relay shield is used to control the nutrient pump. The pump draws 10 watts, so a relay is necessary. The pump will be run during daylight hours for 15 minutes on, alternating with 15 minutes off. The solar resistor is used to determine whether a daylight condition exists, or not.

The SD Card shield is used to log the data about the whole system. I intend on recording the data every 15 minutes, recording the current time (provided by the RTC module), the pump state (turn pump on or off), the ph and temperature (from the Dormant Labs shield) of the nutrient reservoir, the ambient temperature and humidity (from the DHT11 sensor).

The solar panel and charge controller feed a 12 volt marine-grade battery to power the project.

I would like to also monitor the battery voltage and the PPM of the nutrient reservoir, but I do not have the components necessary for that.

Hyduino - Automated Hydroponics With an Arduino - Instructables
Basically, hydroponics is growing plants without the use of a traditional dirt medium by using a nutrient rich water solution. Those mediums used to "plant" in range from fiberglass to sand and from fired clay balls to nothing at all. Several branches of hydroponics include aeroponics, aquaponics, etc. But WHY would I want to take all this extra time and effort to grow my plants in this "special water"?

5 Hydroponic Systems With Raspberry Pi and Arduino - MUO
This hydroponic system was built as part of a school project and features a modular and open source design. Programmed using an Arduino Mega, it can automate the lighting, water cycles and the nutrient feeding. If that isn't enough, this system will also help you to measure and record data so that you know exactly when your plants need care.

About the Hydroponics Arduino Code: Before you start the programming, first of all, make sure you download all the necessary libraries. You will also need to install the Blynk library, if you don’t use the blynk library then you will get the simpleTimer error. As you know I have been using the pH sensor, TDS meter or EC Sensor, TOF10120 Laser Rangefinder or Distance Sensor, DS18b20 one-wire waterproofed digital temperature sensor, and Oled display modules for quite a long time in different ...

Arduino Controlled Smart Hydroponic Modular System
Our project is a hydroponic cultivation, an indoor cultivation based on hydroponics, a method used to grow plants using mineral solutions instead of soil. The general structure is made of aluminum. The structure through which the water circulates consists of PVC pipes cut and glued by hand, and consists of 6 levels through which the water passes.

Arduino Hydroponic Garden using Internet of Things App Blynk
In this video lesson we will walkthrough creating an automated DIY Arduino hydroponics garden that utilizes our programming skills and an Internet of Things (IoT) App called Blynk. Why, you ask? Because hydroponics is super cool, tasty food is nice to have, and through making this project we will demonstrate many potential uses of Arduino.

Arduino Hydroponics, DIY Hydroponics System using pH Sensor and EC ...
Hydroponics is basically growing plants without soil. It is a more efficient way to provide food and water to your plants. Plants don’t use soil – they use the food and water that are in the soil. Soil’s function is to supply plants nutrients and to anchor the plants’ roots.

Hydroponics with idiotware shield - Arduino Project Hub
Hydroponics is a subset of hydroculture, the method of growing plants without soil, using mineral nutrient solutions in a water solvent. Working In this example we are using ESP8266-01 Wifi Module with esp-link firmware, Soil moisture sensor to sense moisture in soil, water level sensor to detect water level and motor to water the plant.
