Sensor platform for precision agriculture

Project Title: Sensor platform for precision agriculture

Project Description: The aim of this research is to develop a low cost, and low energy sensor platform for field monitoring of crop stress conditions for precision agriculture, precision management of resources is essential in modern societies as feeding is part of the basic needs of human beings. With the increasing world population, the importance of advancements in farming in order to increase food production with high-productive and sustainable agriculture has been highlighted in society. Precision agriculture uses site-specific information to precisely deploy the resources based on the soil and crop characteristics unique to each part of the field. It uses IoT sensors with near and remote sensing techniques. Furthermore, using advanced techniques of the cyber-physical system will increase enable capability, adaptability, scalability, resiliency, safety, security, and usability.

  • Cloud Computing.
  • IoT integration devices.
  • Smart farming techniques.
