Abstract

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) are implemented in most of the applications
areas where human beings cannot monitor continuously for long time. Few of which
include monitoring gas emissions in chemical plants, mili- tary surveillance, patient
monitoring system etc. Of these, smart agriculture is the pressing priority of the day. Smart
agriculture includes effective farm man- agement and monitor of crops against diseases
and animals to ensure high yield. The greatest peril is the menace caused by wild animals
besides human thefts. This paper proposes a smart protection mechanism for crops against
peacocks using WSN. Due to a drastic increase in peacock population, farmlands especially
cereals, grains, groundnut, tomato, and pumpkin are being grazed. This leads to low
productivity and becomes a great threat to farmers. The solution is to carry out smart
management to monitor the peacocks and protect crops against them without harming the
national bird.
