Abstract

In recent years home gardening is becoming popular in Japan. In contrast to the popularity, the percentage of the beginners who are unsatisfied with growing vegetables is high. There are two reasons for this problem. One is the conditions of individual environment for home gardening are not fulfilled. The other issue is that the beginners do not fully understand how to grow vegetables. As a result, the required environment that enables beginners to better understand the techniques in growing vegetables effectively while finding enjoyment in home gardening sustainably are not existent. While beginners have the option to use the Internet as a resource, they have a burden in trying to internet the information. The most of the information is described in pictures and writing and therefore, it is difficult to share the information about the timing of watering and a user's tending actions for effective fertilization and so on. To solve this problem, we propose a new system for automatic sharing information on movements in growing vegetables to enhance and promote the understanding of growing vegetable for beginners more intuitively. We implement two functions and one application: an automatic function for sharing movies of user's gardening techniques, an automatic function for sharing environmental data, and the web application to provide users accumulated data systematically. The evaluations results of our system indicated a 78% automatic storing of movies for sharing user's gardening movements. The function for automatic sharing environmental data stored complete environmental data stably. The web application provide users accumulated data systematically. By improving accuracy of the function for sharing movies by recording whole gardening action movements, the proposed system enhances automatic sharing information of movements in growing vegetables.
