Abstract: Grain storage is a vital component in the economy and the society. The quality and safety of grain storage are related to the hundreds of millions of people. In the process of grain storage, temperature and humidity are two major ecological factors that can affect the grain quality. Therefore, the parameters of temperature, humidity must be in accurate and real-time monitoring by supervisory systems in large granaries. The automatic monitoring of the grain storage will help us to improve the operation levels of grain storage, reduce the grain losses during stored procedure and reduce labor intensity. This project designs an environment monitoring system of the granary combining Embedded and ZigBee wireless sensor network technology. Using ZigBee wireless sensor network to complete acquisition and transmission of environment parameters and using ARM9 to achieve precise control of the barn environment as system data controller and using GSM to achieve the system’s remote control, it greatly improves the flexibility and scalability of the warehouse management which sends available data to grain depot manager (Database management) in time and filters invalid data on the spot. It makes many important aspects not need manager to complete on the scene, which saves a lot of manpower and material resources and improves labor productivity.
