DEPLOYMENT OF A WIRELESS SENSOR NETWORK IN A VINEYARD

José A. Gay-Fernández, Iñigo Cuiñas

Abstract

A complete analysis for the deployment of a wireless sensor network in a vineyard is presented in this paper. First, due to the lack of propagation models for peer to peer networks in plantations, propagation experiments have been carried out to determine the propagation equations. This model was then used for planning and deploying an actual wireless sensor network. Afterwards, some sensor data are presented and finally, some general conclusions are extracted from the experiments and presented in the paper.
