Smart farming: the future of agriculture


By 2050 Earth's population is expected to reach 9.6 billion people. How to adjust food production to feed us all? 

The UN Food and Agriculture Organization predicts enormous challenges to feed 9.6 billion by 2050, therefore food production must increase by 70%. Increasing the quality and quantity of agricultural production will become essential and smart sensing technologies will help make farms become more "intelligent" as more farms become connected through smart agriculture technologies. The question is: How?

Advantech LoRaWAN nodes and gateways provide a device-to-cloud solution by simply sending collected data through the LoRa gateway to the cloud. They support both public LoRaWAN and private LoRaWAN solutions. Advantech EdgeLink inside the gateway helps users simply plug-and-play without worrying about data parsing processes.

The hardware behind

LoRaWAN Wireless Vibration Sensor

WISE-2410 gathers, stores and analyses information to help farmers make the right agricultural decisions.

This sensor replaces the traditional manpower inspection that allows manufacturers to achieve remote detection and 24 hours monitoring. Diagnosing through ISO 10816 helps system integrators get started quickly, reducing the entry threshold for preventive maintenance, realizing factory intelligence.

Outdoor LoRa/LoRaWAN
Wireless I/O Module

WISE-4610 features a wireless sensor node based on LoRa network technologies targeting outdoor applications. 

Not only does it provide wireless communication coverage of 5 kilometers, it also has a long battery life due to the low power consumption of the LoRa network.

LoRaWAN Gateway 

WISE-6610 LoRaWAN Gateway enables powerful communication across remote locations.

In global community networks, routing data between devices and application servers, and connecting things to private cloud or public clouds enables big data analysis. The WISE-6610 plays a key role in connecting sensor devices to the cloud. With network service providers like “The Things Network” or WISE-PaaS EdgeLink, theWISE-6610 utilizes data collection to perform intelligent Internet of Things applications.

Wastewater Treatment Operation and Maintenance Management

According to wastewater data, combined with the water process control, precise dosing and aeration can be achieved to improve the quality of effluent water, reducing the material and energy consumption of the wastewater treatment system overall. Click here to read further

Smart Agriculture with LoRaWAN

An agricultural technology company was using sensing equipment with 3G modules to collect sensing data from rice fields. The solution collected data and sent it to cloud via a cellular network for analysis to improve productivity, but this still turned out to be costly and power-consuming so they were looking for better coverage, lower cost, and lower energy consumption. Click here to read further
