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.
