Personal Solar-Powered Water Storage Regulation

By Christopher Ryan Land


An organic farm uses a 2000-gallon water tank to supply water to crops and animals. Currently, the tank is filled with rainwater,
but the rain does not occur consistently enough to keep the tank full. The goal of the project is to automate the filling of the tank using
water from a pond 100 meters across a densely vegetated field. The entire system runs from solar power, meaning a microcontroller
and water pump must run from the same solar panel. The microcontroller must be instructed to turn on the pump from a wireless
control signal from another microcontroller, which is also running on solar panel and is situated at the tank.
