This is the home page for the Automted Grenhouse vertical challenge Blog. Hopefully it will clean the project up a little and make it easy to follow, I will be updating it as the project progresses.

 

Take a look at the challenge summary:

Automated Green House Blog: #Competition Summary - November 2015

 

 

 

The Blogs I think you will find interesting can be split into three sections, Lots of youtube video's on how to make this stuff yourself.

Everything Is released under GNU or similar, so you can copy it and modify at your own risk.

 

The Vertical Challenge Basics

Take a look at the video to see where I am testing the technology, Blog 1 and 2 talk about the project aims in more detail.

 

 

Automated Fish Feeders

Fish feeding is an important factor in aquaponics but often overlooked due to complexity or price, these set of blogs will cover how to optimise the feeding times and amounts using openloop control, feedback control and feed forward control.

 

 

For more information on how to build the control systems, the feeders themselves and the general theory see blogs 3 to 7.

 

Ec meter

The strength of the nutrients we are using in vegetable growing matter quite a lot, It is useful if we can measure the strength of the growing solution. Take a look at blog 10 to see how we implement a cheap way to measure PPM / EC.

 

 

 

Aquaponics Dosing

This one is up and working, It will be uploaded as soon as the content is written

 

 

Some general arduino related content

I find it useful to measure the load on the arduino memory and keep a reading of the uptime.

 

Blogs 9 and 9.1 cover this.
