managing existing water resources
AGRIOT LAB is a technology transfer initiative, promoted by OpenIoT Research Unit of FBK, which aims to leverage on the team’s IoT strength bringing it to the #AgriTech domain.
With Smart Land project, in collaboration with Alperia , the irrigation of cultivated areas will allow a more focused and efficient management of irrigation resources.
The sensors , produced inhouse by OpenIot Unit, collocated in the soil, allow long distance data transmission at low cost. The system informs the farmer through the app on the cellphone or via laptop about soil moisture and combines weather data with those of current temperatures. Modern data transmission technologies make it possible to provide farmers online with a systematic real-time collection of all measurement data from the fields.
