In order to solve the problems existing in the traditional water-saving irrigation monitoring such as smaller monitoring area and lower sampling rate, a water-saving irrigation control system based on CC2430 and fuzzy PID control strategy is designed and developed. The system consists of eight sensor nodes, a gateway node and a monitoring center, and uses CC2430 as the core to develop wireless sensor nodes which follow the ZigBee communication protocol, it uses ZigBee technology to achieve networking of wireless sensors and the automatic aggregation of monitoring data, and uses the fuzzy PID control algorithm to achieve the regulation of irrigation water so as to improve the control precision. The functions, such as management of various sensor nodes, management of a large number of environmental data and early warning are achieved based on embedded database. The test results have showed that this system has several advantages such as high reliability in data transmission, stability, adaptability, good openness, economy, and short development cycle, which is suitable for real-time monitoring of agricultural water-saving irrigation.
