Continuous advancements in wireless technology and miniaturization have made the deployment of sensor networks to monitor various aspects of the environment increasingly flexible. The function of a greenhouse is to create the optimal growing conditions for the full life of the plants. Using autonomous measuring systems helps to monitor all the necessary parameters for creating the optimal environment in the greenhouse. The robot equipped with sensors is capable of driving to the end and back along crop rows inside the greenhouse. This paper deals with the implementation of mobile measuring station in greenhouse environment. It introduces a wireless sensor network that was used for the purpose of measuring and controlling the greenhouse application.
