By positioning sensors, farmers can understand their crops at a micro scale, sustain resources, and reduce environmental impact.
New HOBOnet Field Monitoring System from Onset Enables Cost-Effective Cloud-based Monitoring of Environmental Conditions across Fields and Greenhouses
HOBOnet gives growers and researchers greater visibility into field conditions with near real-time data from wireless sensors, alert notifications, and access via mobile devices
Quantified Ags LoRa-based sensors allow accurate analysis of a cows health, increasing efficiency
The seed funding from several mid-western VC firms with deep experience in agricultural technologies, IoT, and big data technologies is an expert validation of HerdDoggs technology and market potential.
"We think this is the best use-case of AI (Artificial Intelligence) today. Weve basically turned a vocal sound into a machine command and proven integration of different systems is possible," says CEO Darryn Keiller.
A group grid of points (or virtual sensors) are created by an initial model estimate of the conditions at the surface (and above) and that virtual sensor is then nudged by the observations around it to the more accurate value.
The tool making these water measurements possible is a tiny graphene sensor that can be taped to plants - researchers have dubbed it a "plant tattoo sensor."
Desiree Kaplan for GreenMatters: Basically, the robot is towed behind a tractor and uses its cameras to automatically identify, target, and destroy weeds with nearly perfect accuracy.
Anne Trafton for MIT News Office: MIT engineers have created sensors that can be printed onto plant leaves and reveal when the plants are experiencing a water shortage
Nic Fildes for Financial Times: Farmers are placing sensors on various parts of cows bodies - including the tail, neck, hooves and stomach - to help increase the productivity of their herds.
GardenSpace, a Smart Garden Robot that Waters, Monitors, and Protects Plants, Launches on Kickstarter
The GardenSpace camera sensor monitors health by determining how chlorophyll level, plant growth, and plant temperature change over time, and then sends precise information to the gardener via an accompanying app.
NDVI gives powerful insights and makes it easier to visualize crop health that the naked eye cant see. It shows you where the problem is in advance so you can fix it faster. NDVI technology does not replace humans, but it does help make your job easier.
Today, companies like Farmers Edge are installing weather stations in their customers fields to acquire accurate, site-specific data. And having a dense network of weather stations enables detailed analyses of regional trends.
Anthony King, From Horizon Magazine: Bee-based maths is helping teach swarms of drones to find weeds, while robotic mowers keep hedgerows in shape.
Sentera introduces the latest update to its high-precision sensor product line, the Quad Sensor. Featuring four fully customizable imagers, the multispectral Quad Sensor is a precision agriculture, data-collection powerhouse.
