Integrated Solutions for Agriculture & Environment
The world’s population is continually growing. To be able to provide food for this increasing population, production must increase proportionally. That’s where the integration of sensors and the Internet of Things (IoT) can help. Smart sensors embedded in the soil can signal irrigation systems to provide the right amount of water when needed. Other sensors in agricultural storage buildings can provide alerts when conditions such as temperature or humidity exceed desirable ranges. Movement of livestock can be tracked remotely. Crop health can be monitored with images provided by drones that can be analyzed by the cloud. These are just a few examples of where agriculture and technology are starting to merge. With all of this data becoming available, farmers can now use mobile applications to remotely manage and track yields, expenses, and other significant farm details.
