Abstract: In this research, design of M2M system using Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) that measure and control environmental variables of an incubator and a hatcher and shows the environmental variables and controlled and set the limits of them on a 7 LCD display panel designed by 4D workshop and controlled by Arduino. The proposed system contains two control nodes to display and control on the environment of incubator and hatcher. Each control node consists of two different sensor types. Each sensor reading is a specific value of the environment. These sensors send these reading to the Arduino micro-controller card to analyze the reading and make actions to control on the machine while that these reading displayed on the touch screen. After the sensors reading displayed on the touch screen it will be sent by serial to the XBee shield that will send them to coordinator node. The coordinator will collect the readings from all nodes and then send these information using Wi-Fi shield to the remote web server. One part of system is fault diagnostic at the same time of monitoring of sensing nodes work. The system was capable to run standalone without computers to save the working hours of computer. The system also capable to save the history of environment variables in the server. The proposed system has the ability to work in two modes, automatic and manual mode to control on the machine. The hatchery manager can control the motors and heaters and solenoids directly by changing the system to manual mode. In the end, the system is able to send sensors data and the machine status over the internet and by using TCP/IP server to transfer the environmental information to the remote webpage and can be displayed anywhere in world.
