Abstract

It is vital to establish a suitable thermal environment for crop cultivation and greenhouse to improve production quality. However, in greenhouse environments, uneven temperature, caused by the influence of outside temperature, leads to unevenness in air conditioning and results in sub-optimized crop quality and yield. This paper introduces a low-cost and real-time temperature monitoring and airflow controlling system using IEEE P1451.0 and P1451.1.6 standards to improve and balance the greenhouse environments. This system consists of three components: smart temperature sensors (STS) (e.g., infrared array temperature sensor) placed inside and outside the greenhouse, a smart airflow controller (SAC) (e.g., airflow control shutter), and a temperature monitoring and airflow control application (TMACA). In this system, the TMACA can monitor the temperatures inside and outside the greenhouse using two STS, process and estimate the temperature differences inside the greenhouse, and then control and equalize the temperature of the greenhouse based on the temperature differences using the SAC to improve and balance the greenhouse environment. The network communications among STS, TMACA, and SAC are based on IEEE P1451.0 and P1451.1.6 standard network services using the message queuing telemetry transport (MQTT) protocol.
