The goal of this research is to specify requirements and create the high-view architecture of the Internet of Things system applied in greenhouse farming. The research was conducted based on the Middle East pharmaceutical company producing medicines made of cannabis. Four direct users of the system representing three main user groups were interviewed on the requirements elicitation stage. The collected requirements were specified separately according to their types. The level of detail of specified requirements enabled the creation of several architectural views. The developed architecture is based on a wireless sensor network, wired actuators network, and cloud-based IoT platform. The main elements used in the solution are devices provided by Libelium and cloud-based services offered by Amazon Web Services. The specified requirements and developed architecture were verified and validated by representatives of the pharmaceutical company and third-party IoT expert.
