Project Abstract / Summary : “Network controlled canal automation using ARM 7 with µCOS-II(Micro-controller Operating System Version II)” is a modern irrigation technique which eliminates the wastage of water that takes place in traditional irrigation system. Also it provides appropriate service as per the customer requirements. In the 21st century, there are growing concerns and periodic warnings that we are moving into an era of water scarcity. With increasing population, the demand for food and competing use within the water sector has increased. Due to this, there is pressure on irrigation professionals to manage water efficiently. The rallying cry is “more crop per drop”. In response to this, strategic decision and interventions need to be made on a continuous basis. These decisions should cover the full spectrum of irrigation water supply stream, from diversion and distribution to on-farm application down to the crop root zone.
This project automatically manages precisely every aspects of canal operation. It also measures and controls the supply of irrigation of water. The main purpose of this project is to develop a mechatronics based system, which offers more flexibility in canal operation. This system consists of reservoir, main canal, sub canal and sub-sub canal. In this project, we are going to perform multitasks like Motor driving, LCD message display, Semaphore and Mail Box simultaneously using µCOS-II kernel based RTOS. The water level sensors are connected to a micro-controller. Water level sensor senses water from the reservoir and it will provide information to the micro-controller. According to the information received controller takes next action. The water level is detected based on the feedback from the sensors used. Based on this data, the level of water in canal can be automatically controlled using DC motor. Initially the farmer sends message to the control unit for the water requirement through GSM. GSM is a device which is used for sending and receiving message for the particular region. When an order is made software automatically checks if the customer has sufficient allocation and whether the order can be delivered within capacity constraints. The order is send to the customer’s channel. It automatically opens at respected time and continuously adjust to deliver the ordered flow rate. Upstream flume gate dissipate the downstream domain using feed forward control and along with real time level inflow information continuously adjust to maintain the water level immediately downstream. As each regulator adjust to maintain the water level in its downstream pool, upstream regulator in turn adjust right through the reservoir. This means only the exact amount of water required is drawn from the reservoir eliminating the spills and wastage that plays traditional irrigation infrastructure. Total channel control changing the way the world irrigates.

Why did you choose to work on this project topic : We have chosen to work on this project because it is an innovative idea.
The main objective of this project is to eliminate the wastage of water that takes place in traditional irrigation system. Also it provides appropriate service as per the customers requirement such as:
• Increased crop production.
• Eliminate wastage of water.
• Deterioration of soil fertility.
• Avoid water theft.
• Easier management of water system.
• More accurate and equitable distribution of water.
• Better response to emergencies.
• Reduce human efforts.
• Social benefits(user’s satisfaction,less conflict).
• Biasing can be avoided.
