Abstract

Nowadays the Internet of Things (IoT) is used in many sectors such as health, military, industry, agriculture and so on. This technology is considered as a special type of ad hoc network and one of these promising areas is precision farming where it can provide important support that will facilitate agricultural practices and that can modernize and replace some of the traditional techniques. In Sahelian area, water is a critical resource due to short rainy seasons and waste of water in gross irrigation. The main activity in the Niayes area is market gardening. Urgent measures must be taken to save water reserves during the long dry season. Smart irrigation can be a solution for water wastage problem. Many techniques have been developed to solve these problems. In this paper, we can find techniques based on evapotranspiration (ET), Soil Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) and Internet of Things (IoT). This paper aims to propose a solution of smart irrigation based on IoT.
