Water Trough Monitoring
The client owns a vast cattle farm in Australia
Implement a remote water trough monitoring system for a cattle farm. The system needs to facilitate remote monitoring of water levels in these troughs and send appropriate alerts upon the depletion of the water level beyond the required level.
We developed a solution that allowed the client to visualize the water levels through a mobile application and receive images of the water troughs continuously. We built a custom gateway using Raspberry Pi and LoRa shield (Raspberry Pi LoRa gateway shield) and configured it to send the data to a web server. Images of the water trough are continuously captured with the help of a camera module, consisting of a Particle Electron microcontroller and a serial camera.
