Agriculture Sensor Array
Case study: How to avoid crop damage. Monitoring insects populations.
According to Food and Agricultural Organization of US, insects are caused to destroy 20% of the world’s total crop production annually, generating a loss of hundred billion dollars to the economy.
In addition to the economic losses from crop damage, there are indirect losses related to an implication of pesticides.
Agriculture requires a targeted approach to pest management – easy, safe and low-cost control methods. In order to make well-informed decisions about when to spray the crops, to target insecticides more accurately to reduce costs, optimise resources and improve yield, it should be able to:
Detect species that are present
Determine their population density
Determine how they are distributed in the field
We developed a LoraWAN sensor array based on STM32F4xx, MCU and RFM95W 868/915Mhz RF Transceiver Module and applied onboard decision making. In case you are looking for custom hardware development or embedded firmware development services ADUK GmBH is always ready to provide you with this services.
