Engineering students creating Smart Garden to water plants with precision

Water- and labor-conserving Smart Garden takes shape in a lab in SUNY Oswego's Shineman Center, as three seniors in electrical and computer engineering prepare a presentation for the college's Quest symposium Wednesday, April 3.
The student's pre-graduation capstone project, the gravity-fed prototype relies on programmable, wireless communication modules transmitting data - including how much water any individual plant needs - from sensors for temperature, humidity and soil moisture to flow-metered valves.
The Smart Garden project is the basis of just one of the hundreds of scholarly and creative student, faculty and staff talks, demonstrations and poster presentations planned for Quest, which runs all day April 3 in venues across campus.
