In this present job, we seek to develop a prototype of an automated agricultural irrigation system, monitored and controlled remotely. For that, we will use inexpensive tools, flexibility and support such as Arduino, XBee and Android. Arduino and XBee, will be responsible of the automating the system. Android will achieve the remote monitoring and control from anywhere in the world where there is cellular service and Internet. In this way we can give the farmer the comfort and security that he don’t get with a manually controlled system.
