A low-cost sensor system is presented to monitor a small composting machine. This project is based on two different considerations:
1.local composting, at the community scale, should be widespread in the future
2.the diffusion of Arduino and its applications.
Composting is a process in which some parameters could be monitored to secure the compost quality and, if necessary, to take the necessary correcting actions on the machine.
