Drip-irrigation System to Water Household Plants

Known as the Smart Watering Irrigation System (SWIS), the device analyzes the soil-moisture content through moisture sensors. When the soil moisture reaches the 30 percent threshold, water is no longer distributed to the plant. Local nurseries sponsored and consulted on the project, and Vernier provided the InvenTeam with design equipment. For its next steps, the InvenTeam plans to create an Internet interface so consumers can monitor their plants remotely.
