This paper explores the use of an ad-hoc wireless sensor network in a vineyard-based environment to increase the effective range of sensor nodes without the use of high power communication techniques. Physical sensor and gateway nodes were developed in order to test the use of an adapted AODV routing protocol in a wireless sensor network. The network was deployed to a vineyard environment where the effectiveness of the strategy was evaluated based on the ability of the network to self-configure. First tests indicate that the protocol performs sufficiently well to be used in vineyard environments for data collection. We conclude that an ad-hoc sensor network is a feasible approach to low-power sensing over wide areas, as required for precision viticulture.
