Motivated by the needs of modern agriculture, in this paper we present CropNET, a wireless multimedia sensor network system for agriculture monitoring. Both hardware and software designs of CropNET are tailored for sensing in wide farmland without human supervision. We have carried out multiple rounds of deployments. The evaluation results show that CropNET performs well and facilitates modern agriculture.
