Water monitoring involves many different activitites, from ensuring the quality of surface or underground water, both for human beings and animal life, to the monitoring of a nationwide water infrastructure. Machine-to-machine (M2M) and Wireless sensor networks (WSN) technologies are becoming increasingly popular in this area. Based on ADVANTICSYS dataloggers and controllers, we deliver a wide…
Greenhouses and Precision Agriculture Advanced Systems
Using wireless sensor networks (WSN) within the agricultural industry is increasingly common, as it provides many benefits to the farmer, impacting both the quality of the crops and the overall operating costs. WSN address the traditional monitoring problems related to outdoor areas, by removing the need of cables and of power sources in locations where no infrastructure is available. WSN are also especially suitable for temporary or problem-solving deployments, and to gather more numerous and more consistent data. Jointly with the use of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technologies, ADVANTICSYS provides a comprehensive solution to enable smart agriculture solutions including the following capabilities:
- Greenhouses monitoring and control: climate conditions; lighting control/dimming system; irrigation efficient automation
- Precision agriculture: Trunk, stem & fruit diameter, soil moisture; leaf wetness; weather stations with anemometer, wind speed & pluviometer
- Irrigation: Water flow monitoring in canals
Greenhouses monitoring and control
| Intelligent irrigation can be achieved by having real time information on the fields soil moisture and temperature levels. Combined with an individualized irrigation system each plant can receive the exact amount of water it needs, effectively reducing cost and improving the quality of the resulting product. ADVANTICSYS wireless devices can also be used to control the different actuators in the system, without the need of a wired infrastructure.
Moreover, our monitoring products can monitor water flow in irrigation canals, enabling a real-time solution for preventing water leakages.
