The
convenience

of Wireless Sensor
Network (WSN)

technology

enhances the performance of
distributed sensing, allowing real time analysis and data visualization from bio

chemical sensor
s
.
In
recent years,
WSN
has

move
d to the next stage
where
diverse range of
s
ensor
s

can be
wirelessly

integrated, and
thus

facilitating the realization of

large
sensor arrays
;

which in turn allow
s

better
acquisition of temporal and spatial information

for more effective decision making.

The above solution was implemented on a 300

a
cre integrated open farm, greenhouses, aquaculture,
and
swiftlet houses
bordered by

secondary

and virgin forest
, in Perlis, Malaysia. A vast array
bio and
chemical sensor

,
infrared sensor,
electronic tongue, gas sensor, electronic nose together with vario

conventional

soil and water sensors were deployed. These sensors were connected together by hybrid
WSN
-
WIFI network.

The outcome of this project has enable

better decision for farming practices,
influence of the water

effective study o

of the surrounding forest.
