Arduino Based Aquaponics

at 4:05 pm. Filed under Electronic Hacks


Arduino Based Aquaponics uses apduino to get things done. Kretzinger is able to configure the system to work as desired based on sensors and a large number of controlled pumps. He can get automated text messages when events occur or when something is going wrong with his system. He has plans to grow his system to use all of the spare land he has around his house before he scales up to a separate location.

“APDuino allows Kretzinger to read the sensors in his garden without any programming. Now Kretzinger’s garden can send him tweets or Facebook updates if something is going wrong and Kretzinger can adjust the water flow, pH and temperature from a smartphone.
Now, what started as a hobby may provide Kretzinger with the boost to compete as a small farmer. His plan is to keep it urban (or suburban). He’ll use unused backyards or vacant lots to grow his produce and he’s created a prototype tower (PVC structures similar to those in our videos of Rob Torcellini’s greenhouse and of rooftop hydroponics on Manhattan restaurant Bell, Book & Candle). “

    I’d be curious to learn how the containers were made. Seems like PVC pipe of sorts or perhaps even a metal pipe. Could well be the most difficult part of the project.
