Soil monitoring is needed for healthier production. Soil quality monitoring of a large farmland is time consuming process. An automated system for monitoring the soil quality is an appropriate solution for this purpose.Introduction
A system for monitoring the soil quality remotely, is presented in this project. An operator or user can easily monitor the soil (based on sensor data) from ground station or anywhere (since, its a remote monitoring solution).
Technically, The RSL10-SENSE board is responsible for data collection. It also transmit data to RSL10-SENSE mobile apps via BLE. The RSL10-SENSE control apps upload data on cloud, so sensed data can be found on internet from anywhere.
The automated system is more reliable than the manual system. It also a feasible solution for monitoring the large farmland. In agriculture soil monitoring is important for healthier production.
The list of features of the system are given bellow:
- Real time soil properties monitoring
- Push notification based on soil properties
- Data storage on cloud
- Historical data visualization
- Admin panel
The list of components needed for building this device are given bellow:
- RSL10-SENSE (main controller board)
- Soil sensor (for measuring pH, moisture, humidity)
- Connecting wire
CloudMQTT Broker service is used here for sending and storing the data. An account is needed. if you don't have any account, please perform the sign in.
After login in your account (from details tab), you need to copy some information such as, server, User, password and port etc. Those information are require for connecting your device to the broker.

Data Transmission Testing
We have developed a cloud connected mobile apps for visualizing the sensor data. The screenshots of mobile apps are given bellow:
The cardboard version enclosure is used here. We have a plan to build a 3D printed model enclosure for this device.
