Internet Of Things
The Internet of things (IoT) is the network of physical devices, vehicles,
home appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors,
actuators, and connectivity which enables these things to connect, collect and exchange data,
creating opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems,
resulting in efficiency improvements, economic benefits, and reduced human exertions.
The number of IoT devices increased 31% year-over-year to 8.4 billion in the year 2017 and it
is estimated that there will be 30 billion devices by 2020.
The global market value of IoT is projected to reach $7.1 trillion by 2020.
IoT involves extending Internet connectivity beyond standard devices, such as desktops,
laptops, smartphones and tablets, to any range of traditionally dumb or
non-internet-enabled physical devices and everyday objects. Embedded with technology,
these devices can communicate and interact over the Internet, and they can be remotely
monitored and controlled. With the arrival of driverless vehicles, a branch of IoT, i.e.
the Internet of Vehicle starts to gain more attention.
The global population is set to touch 9.6 billion by 2050. So, to feed this much population, the farming industry must embrace IoT. Against the challenges such as extreme weather conditions and rising climate change, and environmental impact resulting from intensive farming practices, the demand for more food has to be met.
Smart farming based on IoT technologies will enable growers and farmers to reduce waste and enhance productivity ranging from the quantity of fertilizer utilized to the number of journeys the farm vehicles have made.
So, what is smart farming? Smart farming is a capital-intensive and hi-tech system of growing food cleanly and sustainable for the masses. It is the application of modern ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) into agriculture.
In IoT-based smart farming, a system is built for monitoring the crop field with the help of sensors (light, humidity, temperature, soil moisture, etc.) and automating the irrigation system. The farmers can monitor the field conditions from anywhere. IoT-based smart farming is highly efficient when compared with the conventional approach.
The applications of IoT-based smart farming not only target conventional, large farming operations, but could also be new levers to uplift other growing or common trends in agricultural like organic farming, family farming (complex or small spaces, particular cattle and/or cultures, preservation of particular or high quality varieties etc.), and enhance highly transparent farming.
In terms of environmental issues, IoT-based smart farming can provide great benefits including more efficient water usage, or optimization of inputs and treatments. Now, let’s discuss the major applications of IoT-based smart farming that are revolutionizing agriculture.
IOT For Saffron Farm ((Operation & Maintenance M.S. (Managed Services) ))
Every single Trouble Ticket are being escalated to Operation and Maintenance team within short window time according to Service Level Agreement. Incidents are priorities based on severity from Low to Critical, each having defined SLA.
Any Trouble Ticket which assigned by NOC team to local field technician should be consider as well as fault recovery procedure along with Corrective Maintenance, Preventive Maintenance to be conducted within every month to ensure maximum site availability and lower every operational sensor deficiency.
How IoT optimizes vital factors for saffron at farm
We ensure Saffron major soil and environmental factors are maintained and monitored intelligently and regularly with the proposed IoT solution as follow
- Farm fertilizing program and measuring soil required elements
- Controlling the measure of soil PH
- Irrigation system
- Soil Temperature
How IoT influence in improving saffron crops production at workshop
Our IoT solution for Saffron is not only concise to its farms. We are planning to allocate IoT sensors of humidity and temperature at different locations inside the production workshop, including: dryer room and the storage. It aims to record the certain measurements of humidity, temperature and notify any abnormalities through IoT platform to the operator (24/7).
Apart from that we intend to install some sensors to monitor the level of bacteria within the workshop environment
