The agricultural sector is the first industry and the most impacted by the climate changes. The delicate environment that must manage some type of crops require d the constant monitoring and maintenance of the greenhouse. The Internet of Things (IoT) gives a new alternative for real time environmental monitoring of variables such as temperature, humidity and solar irradiation that can contribute for the health y growth of the crop , and also impact for the plagu es and sickness presence . The objective of this thesis is built a Wireless S ensor N etwork using radiofrequency devices and environmental sensor s . The limitation s of this master thesis are: the location of the sensor node , the external conditions that wi ll not impact the network, the simulation, test and pilots that are deployed in a controlled space . The wireless sensor network proposed employ s the Zolertia Motes using IEEE802.15.4 standard . This device allows low power consumption , as the nodes must be located in places where it may handle several week s without change depending on the autonomy of the ir batteries cell . The network protocol manage d works over l ow consumption , as same as the transmitted and received packets of data . T he standard used on this project is the 6LowPAN . T he network co nfigured works over the stack protocol IPv6 so that all the devices handled UDP and manage this internet package. The Raspberry Pi 3 B will work as border router between the sensor nodes and the exterior consider ed as Internet using the IPv4 standard internet router protocol. The framework used for the network implementation is ContikiOS installed on th e gateway and tested using one mote located in the la b . The data manage d in this experiment has low data rate as this measurement do not require a permanent monitoring and high speed . T he atmospherically changes are not variant enough to be observe d constantly . The sample rate will be 1 package each 10 minutes. This project aim s to develop a full network implementa tion since the mote until the dashboard .
