Prototype

The Monitoring is based on a prototype that was made in an earlier design stage. This prototype was meant to

  • Test sensors and arduino librarys.
  • Experiment with presenting data on an lcd screen.
  • Working with logical user interaction.
  • Explore possibilities of system.

The prototype showed us that the moisture sensor was good for both moisture readings but also excellent as a waterlevel detector. The data on the lcd screen could either be shown as a text saying high or low, or an actual number. We found that is was best to cycle through data instead of trying to show a lot of data on the same time.
