Agriculture and environment issues are becoming increasingly important and are facing some new challenges. It is believed that wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) and machine automation are among the key enabling technologies to address these challenging issues. Although extensive research has been conducted on individual technologies, their seamless integration to solve complex environmental problems has not been done before. This paper provides a design concept and some preliminary results for an integrated autonomous monitoring system. The integrated system will provide a powerful and cost-efficient tool for optimal, profitable, and sustainable management of environment and agriculture and thus bring significant social and economic benefits.
