Smart Farming: Sense - Analyse - Act
Every year, the demand for traceability of crop protection and fertilization agents by the food industry and governments increases. Today’s technologies make it possible to perform and check agricultural processes with higher precision than ever before.
Today’s technologies make it possible to perform and check agricultural processes with higher precision than ever before.
However, with these new technologies R&D costs and development time increase as well, as does the need for skilled personnel to operate the new systems.
Regular sampling is being replaced by continuous monitoring, like in fruit tree cultivation, where blossom counting is performed by drones, and trunk diameters are measured when a vehicle passes by.
Acquired data is used to analyse causes and results of agricultural activities. At the moment, the practical use of this analysis is limited. It will take several years to collect enough data until future trends can be predicted for further optimization of agriculture.
What we DID
In the packaging industry, we have equipped printing machines with new controls, to restore seamless production and maintainability (near-zero downtime).
In fruit cultivation, we have equipped crop protection and fertilization machines with controls with high resolution GPS. This enables the farmer to fully control the process.
What we DO
PlantmatiQ designs control systems and software for machinery for data collection in close cooperation with machine manufacturers (OEM) and end users.
The PlantmatiQ systems connect operational technology (OT) to information technology (IT), by making production data accessible to higher-level systems like ERP and administration systems.
The systems are designed in a modular way, in order to upscale or downscale the applications, depending on the customer’s requirements.
Industrial solutions for agricultural challenges
PlantmatiQ continues to work on its platform for controlling and monitoring agricultural activities that is both horizontally as well as vertically scalable.
A full overview of all agricultural activities in the value chain will make it possible to implement a predictive algorithm. When used for process optimization, this algorithm will reduce the environmental impact of agricultural activities.
We at PlantmatiQ have experience with replacing obsolete hardware and software with new, state-of-the-art solutions.
PlantmatiQ’s platform reduces R&D costs and development time, as its design is easily scalable and brand agnostic. Being easy to operate, these systems can make up for the shortage of skilled workers.
In addition, application of the PlantmatiQ systems reduces environmental impact by an increased precision during crop protection and fertilization in agriculture.
