Wireless Sensor Network Based Chicken Coop Surveillance System

Lijia Xu, Xiaopei Ren, Zhikun You, Sheng Wu


To tackle with the current situation of China's chick raising industry that is characterized with plenty insufficient automatic level and underdeveloped management techniques, a chicken coop surveillance system based upon wireless sensor network proposed in this article is composed of 4 major components like parameter collection module, host and slave computer as well as wireless communication network for the purpose of monitoring the temperature, humidity and concentration of hazardous gas inside the chicken coops while automatically initiating the manure remover according to the detected hazardous gas concentration. It is revealed by relevant experiments that such system is able to realize precise control over temperature and humidity with maximum tolerance up to 2℃ and 4% respectively and meanwhile, ensure that the concentration of hazardous gas is limited to an allowed range. Therefore, this is an ideal intelligent chicken coop surveillance system for chick raisers as it is not only easy to operate but also capable of delivering preferable control results.
