Hall 26

The FutureIOT research network, a team of more than 30 partners from science and industry, is working on the technology and application research of future IoT systems in digital agriculture in the soil sensor technology subproject. In addition to global data such as weather history or forecast, locally collected Iot-supported sensory data on plant condition and specific soil quality issues are included in optimized field management on partial areas.

A mobile measuring system directly in the field analyses critical soil parameters (Nmin) and is connected to the IoT platform via mobile radio techniques. Further soil sensors for humidity and temperature measurements transmit data using Low-Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technology.
