Farm Box is an environment-controlled enclosure that can be used to monitor the growth of various plants. Farm Box allows a user to specify a plant’s ideal conditions for growth such as amount of light exposure, water, and humidity. Farm Box features temperature, humidity, soil content, and air content sensors. It is in the form of a 2’x2’x5’ enclosure with a microcontroller and sensors inside. The microcontroller interfaces with a computer to display measurements and allows for user customization of controls. The computer includes a graphical user interface for monitoring and control that will send commands to the microcontroller which will have firmware to interface with the actual hardware.
