MultiTech IoT Devices Showcase Power to Improve Yield and Efficiency in Farms Around the World at InfoAG Conference

Demonstrations Highlight Extensive Cellular & LoRa® at Work Within Agricultural Scenarios. MultiTech Experts Speak out on Panels and Workshops on LPWA and Moving Quickly from Prototype to Production.

WHAT: InfoAG Conference, the premier event for discussion and advancement of precision agriculture.

WHEN: July 25-27, 2017
Panel and Workshop Dates:
July 25 from 1pm to 3pm "AgTech IOT - Deploying sensor networks using Low Power Wide Area Networking (LPWAN)" panel discussion.
July 26 from 8am to 10am - "LPWA Prototype to Production Workshop"
WHERE: Union Station, St. Louis, MO
Demonstrations: Live product demonstrations in Booth #63 of MultiTechs newest wireless industrial IoT technologies will model real-life scenarios within agriculture.
Demonstration highlights the analytic platform, a "bulb" in the ground that transmits relevant data (light, soil moisture, round and surface temperature) and is powered by MultiTechs MultiConnect® mDot™. combines securely integrated smart sensor technology with state of the art predictive analytics and discovery engines to enable accurate decisions.
The MultiConnect mDot (MTDOT Series), is a secure, CE/FCC & LoRa Alliance Certified™, ARM® mbed™ OS programmable, low‐power LoRaWAN™ RF module, that provides significantly longer range and improved radio performance compared to traditional wireless solutions—resulting in greater transmission range, edge decision making and reduced capital expense.
Panel: "AgTech IOT - Deploying sensor networks using Low Power Wide Area Networking (LPWAN)"
Michael Finegan, Director of IoT Business Development, will lead a discussion on public and private network communication options for agricultural deployments. Growers and AgTech enthusiasts will learn best practices on how to leverage crowdsourcing platforms to move from prototype to production quickly.

IDS NXT ocean: grab, label, train, run AI

IDS NXT ocean: grab, label, train, run AI

Artificial intelligence can be used, for example, to classify fruit varieties or to identify damaged parts, e.g. apples with marks or color deviations. To cover all possible variances with classical image processing would be very time-consuming and costly. With artificial intelligence, however, these challenges can be solved in no time at all. IDS NXT ocean is a user-friendly all-one-one system which requires neither special knowledge in deep learning nor camera programming. Only sample images and knowledge on how to evaluate them (e.g. "good apples" / "bad apples") are needed. This makes the start into AI-based image processing particularly easy. Camera hardware, software, infrastructure and support come from a single company. For beginners, IDS offer the IDS NXT ocean Creative Kit, which includes all components and workflows to create, train and run a neural net.
