Notes

Abstract: This research uses a wireless sensor network (WSN) node to monitor and remotely control various water parameters in an aquaponic system. The aquaponic system served as a model for an aquatic ecosystem found in nature. Research indicates that dissolved oxygen (DO), pH and water levels are the most important parameters to monitor and control for successful growth in both fish and plants. Temperature and ammonia levels were also monitored but a control system was not developed because of the difficulty in re-establishing these two conditions using a control system. An aquaponic system in not entirely a closed system as fish need to be fed almost daily so an automatic dispenser was created. The aquaponics control system used an Arduino as the microprocessor and an XBee shield-radio transmitter and receiver respectively. Dissolved oxygen, pH, and temperature were collected in a database initially for 24 and then later at 48 hours. When this data was compared to the more developed and commercially used sensor probe ware, PASCO, less than a 3% error was calculated. Data was also collected for dissolved oxygen, pH, and tank refill control systems and results show reliability and sustainability in each control.
