The AgriSenseBox, is a Web of Things (WoT) integrated Sensor Platform for Precision Agriculture. Based upon open hardware, the AgriSenseBox provides a web server containing a RESTful interface. The sensor platform is deployable in the field and makes sensor data processable without caring of differing formats. The AgriSenseBox is encoding its measurements as JSON using the structure proposed by O&M and hands out links to descriptions of the attached sensors. Following the principles of the WoT, sensor data is browseable by using web standards, such as HTTP and URI.

The AgriSenseBox consists of an Arduino Mega 2560, an Ethernet Shield with Wireless Bridge, a GPS and sensors for soil moisture, temperature and brightness. It is capable of detecting changes in the domain of the sensors, for instance by moisturing or shadowing. When accessing the IP of the sensor platform, the platform responses with a json-object containing URIs to sensors attached to the sensor platform, as well as URIs to sensor descriptions of the sensors. When browsing the AgriSenseBox, this feature enables sensor recognition.

The BSc thesis introducing the AgriSenseBox can be downloaded here. Sourcecode which was developed can be found in this repository.
