Soil is a composition of Sand, Silt and Clay. From three phase concept, it is clear that the soil consists of solids, water and air. The ratio of weight of water to weight of solids for a given soil mass is known as water content of soil. In other words, the water content (w) also known as natural water content or natural moisture content. Water content is used in a wide range of scientific and technical areas, and is expressed as a ratio, which can range from zero to the value of the soil porosity at saturation. Traditionally, the water content is measured by pycnometer or oven dry methods which would generally take 24 hours to determine the water content soil. As the time is important these days, several smart advances are occurred in determining the moisture content through Internet of Things (IoT). In this project, the water content of soil is measured through IoT sensors and traditional methods. Present work involves in which different soil samples are taken along the road construction site and classifying them with the help of sieve analysis, Atterberg limits and plasticity chart and moisture content measurement using internet of things (IoT) and traditional methods are compared. Also, find a possible correlation developed between the soil moisture content by traditional methods and through IoT.
