Abstract: In this study, an IoT-based smart orchard monitoring is proposed to gather and transmit environment data from a sensor node to a central node for necessary and relevant actuation in order to have good produce at the soonest amount of time. Wireless sensor motes are deployed based on a simple linear pattern across a square farm and only require the minimum set of specifications to monitor its surrounding. On the other hand, the central nodes will require more processing power, memory and power requirements. Sensor and central nodes communicate in a line-of-sight method and follows a deterministic routing table based on the sensor node’s four neighbors. Throughput, latency, and energy consumption results are presented to allow designers and farmers consideration and freedom on how to select which routing protocol can be used to achieve their target objectives.
