Upon closer inspection, I found that some of my original ideas are not exactly matching up with what a microbit does, so, as part of the engineering process, I am revisiting my brainstorm…
My original thought was that lights would flash different colours when a plant was either over or underwatered, my thoughts are still roughly the same, however, now I am looking more into the specifics. I think I will edit the colour scheme.
Before I said that I will make the middle ground yellow, that doesn’t really make sense, like on a traffic light, yellow doesn’t mean go, so I will change that to green, and that moisture level will be in between 60-80%, the recommended level. Then for the less than 50% moisture, I will leave it red. Finally, for over 90% moisture, meaning it’s been watered to0 much, meaning that the plant could rot, I will code it to flash yellow.
The photo of the code on the post before is just me beginning, I have to figure out how to program the rest, I have saved a copy to my computer and I hope I can work on it over spring break.
