INTRODUCTIONA greenhouse is a building where plants are grown. A greenhouse is a structure with differenttypes of covering materials, like glass or plastic roof and frequently glass or plastic walls; itheats up because incoming visible solar radiation from the sun is absorbed by plants, soil, andother things inside the building. Glass is transparent to this radiation. The warmed structuresand plants inside the greenhouse re-radiate this energy in the infra-red, to which glass ispartly opaque, and that energy is trapped inside the glasshouse. Although there is some heatloss due to conduction, there is a net increase in energy (and therefore temperature) insidethe greenhouse. Air warmed by the heat from hot interior surfaces is retained in the buildingby the roof and wall. These structures range in size from small sheds to very large buildings.The greenhouses are filled with equipment like screening installations, heating, cooling, andlighting and may be automatically controlled by a computer.The greenhouse is one of thetypical representatives in facility agriculture. Its main advantages are offseason cultivation,high yield, and strong resistance to adverse weather and soil conditions. With the widely useof greenhouse,environment intelligent control technology is paid more and more attention inmodern greenhouse. It regulates the temperature, air relative humidity and light intensityautomatically so as to create the best growth condition and achieve offseasoncultivation.However, due to the interactive influence among the solar radiation, indoor plantsand other indoor equipments, the distribution of temperature andhumidity are significantlydifferent in greenhouse [6-7].Climate control variables are as shown in fig 1. Fig 1: Climate control variablesZigBee wireless sensor networks (ZWSN), a kind of short-range, low-rate wirelessnetworking technology, solves the shortages of traditional greenhouse environmentmonitoring system and improves the performance of the whole system. Ithas its own radiostandards, realizing the thousands of tiny sensors to achieve mutual communication with verylittle requirement of energy. The self-configuring and self-healing nature of ZWSN makesdeployment simple and ensures reliable communications no matter how the environmentchanges. It also provides flexibility, allowing radio nodes and their associated controllers tobe added, removed, or relocated without the need for traditional network cabling work.The greenhouse monitoring system mainlyconsisted of ZWSN system and monitoringcenter.Three types of network nodes set up the wirelesssensor networks by a self-organizing mode:gatewaynode, router node, and end device node. Among themthe end device nodes and routernodes managed thedata collection of inside greenhouse, and thenthe gathered data was sent tothe gateway node, finallythe gateway node sent data to the monitoringcenter . In order to save 148

Zigbee network configuration is as shown infig 2. Fig 2 : Zigbee network configurationThe disadvantages of wired monitoring system such as complicated arrangement, difficultmaintenance and so on. Hence wireless monitoring system is developed which does not needcables, adds or reduces configuration at random .posses simple system construction.Moreover it is characterized by its low power consumption, simplicity. Therefore it proves tobe of practical significance[1-3].ZigBee wireless sensor networks(ZWSN), a kind of short-range, low-rate wirelessnetworking technology, solves the shortages oftraditional greenhouseenvironment monitoring systemand improves the performance of the whole system[8].2. ANALYSIS OF NETWORKING TECHNOLOGYZWSN includes two types of address: 16-bitnetwork address and 64-bit physical addresses.When anetwork node joins in the network, its parent nodeassigns it a random 16-bit networkaddress which isn’t assigned to other node. Once the node has beenassigned a short address,it is no reason to give up theshort address. The address should be retained unlessit received astatement that the address conflicts withother node’s address. As is known to all, eachnetworknode has the unique 64-bit physical addresses whichcould be identified by userconveniently. Coordinatoruses 0x0000 as its own 16-bit network address afterestablishingnetwork. Router and end device nodeachieve communication through 16-bit networkaddressassigned by its parent node after successfully joiningnetwork. Node addressassignment algorithm usesCskipalgorithm[9].The address assignment algorithms formulaofCskip is in (1):Cm= child node total number of any parent node .Rm= router child nodes total number of parent node .Lm= maximum depth of network .d= real depth of device .Maximum terminal device nodes = maximum childnodes - the largest routing nodes = Cm –Rm .(2) is used to calculate the address of router childnode N of the parent with depth of d. (3) is used tocalculate the address of end device child node N of theparent which depth is d. (4) is used to calculate the totalnumber of potential nodes . 149

International Journal of Computer Engineering and Technology (IJCET), ISSN 0976 –6367(Print), ISSN 0976 – 6375(Online) Volume 3, Issue 3, October-December (2012), © IAEMEThe gateway node is Full Function Device (FFD)to manage the communication among allnetworknodes and information interaction between wirelessnetwork and administration centeras a coordinator.Router node is also FFD, which could transmit andreceive both its own dataand its neighbor nodesdata, and form multiple redundant paths forcommunicationimportantly. End device node isdesigned as Reduce Function Device (RFD) to collectdataand communicate with gateway node and routernode. RFD internal circuitry is simpler thanFFD and isconducive to reducing energy consumption[10-12]. Thenetwork has theintelligence to determine the optimalrouting path, if necessary, that switch to anotherpathwhile the original path is disrupted. The end devicenode collects temperature andhumidity data, sendingdata to gateway node directly or by jumping therouters. For powersaving the end device node can beturned on and off under software control. End devicenodeis expected to spend most of their time sleeping,and work only when sampling, computing,andcommunicating, in order to optimize the systemlifetime requirements. Minimizing powerinvolvesturning off sensors, the radio, and the processor to beput into a deep sleep mode.The main function of gateway node is to set up and manage ZigBee networks as well as datatransmission.When power-on gateway node searches channel and forms ZigBee networkautomatically, and the othernode support to join and disconnected from thenetwork. Itreceives instructions from monitoringcenter and retransmits them to correspondingnetworknodes while retransmitting sampling data fromnetwork nodes to monitoring center.End device node starts to find and join in thenetwork, in order to reduce energyconsumptioncollecting data at every sampling period and enteringlow-power mode after datapacket sent to gatewaynode.[5] .3. SYSTEM DESCRIPTIONThe diagram of monitoring system for environmentparameters in greenhouse is shown infigure 3. It includesevery terminal, centralized control unit. On the one hand, everyterminaltakes charge of collecting temperature, humility, carbondioxide and other parameters,and transmit these parametersto centralized control unit by wireless sending modules; ontheother hand, it takes charge of carrying out the instructionssend by centralized control unit andthen to adjust these parameters.Centralized control unit summarizes the datacollecting byevery terminal and sends instructions to every terminal to adjust the environmentparametersof every terminal.The dynamic behaviour of the greenhouse microclimateis a combination of physicalprocesses involvingenergy transfer (radiation and heat) and mass balance(water vapour fluxesand CO2 concentration). Theseprocesses depend on the outlet environmentalconditions,structure of the greenhouse, type and state of the crop, andon the effect of thecontrol actuators . The main waysof controlling the greenhouse climate are by usingventilationand heating to modify inside temperature and humidityconditions, shading andartificial light to change internalradiation, CO2 injection to influence photosynthesis,andfogging/misting for humidity enrichment. 150
