R&D PROJECT: AGRITECH
WIreless Sensor nEtworks for soiL analysiS
Wisely aims to design a new device and an ICT platform for soil monitoring that can cover two specific fundamental objectives: Configurability and Standardization.
The device will allow you to find important data such as: water consumption, soil temperature and moisture through the use of local sensors. These data will be related to environmental data such as: weather forecasts and / or other parameters that can significantly modify the result of the forecast. A fundamental characteristic of this device is the extreme configurability of the data that are detected, the possibility of making them available to the user and allowing their correlation through the Internet with heterogeneous data not locally detectable.
Wisely adheres to the communication and interface standards through Open API in order to guarantee “growth” even outside Wisely. One of the general research objectives of the WISELY project will consist in creating a real “data ecosystem” in which the availability of data, the existence of algorithms capable of processing them, and the creation of end-user applications capable of enhance them, they will be based on an approach open to possible future additions.
The WISELY HW/SW framework is the innovative element of the project. The main features are:
We are creating a smart sensor that will allow you to to keep your garden under control! The wireless sensor measures two important parameters that influence the growth factors of a vegetable: temperature and moisture.
Creation of an ICT platform capable of designing a network of low-cost sensors and collecting measurements in real time. WISELY has a particular attention to open data for a triple aspect:
Design of a new low-cost measurement device for agriculture is consistent with the Agrifood specialization area and in particular it is functional to the objective of:
