I’m still working on pulling together a parts list and planning the details for the sensor side of things. Here’s my list so far:
Moisture Sensor $37.95 XBee $22.95 Solar Panel $25 Battery $12.50 Solar Battery Charger $17.50 Adjustable Voltage Regulator $5.95 XBee Breakout Board $2.95 some XBee Headers $2 and miscellaneous resistors, wires and an NPN transistor which I have on hand. This is how I’m thinking I’ll wire it up. Thoughts?
I’m using an OSBo so I’ll also have to hook an XBee up to my BBB but that should be much more straight-forward with a cape and some stackable headers.
