Connected farming and intelligent supply chains leverage smart sensing technologies to deliver more productive and sustainable agriculture production and enables precision farming through data driven resource optimisation and management.
Smart farming currently relies on satellite, existing terrestrial or mobile network connectivity for transform of data from smart sensors. This means coverage over remote farming areas is often patchy and the data charges incurred can be significant. Meshed’ s LoRaWAN IoT smart agriculture solution is a cost effective solution for farmers that can be easily deployed with little configuration. The sensors are robust enough to withstand harsh weather conditions, able to run independent of electricity for year and allows for data to be transmitted over long distance. The benefits include:
- Reduced manpower involved in security, monitoring, fencing and machinery through remote asset management
- Increased yields as a result of data driven precision farming
