An RTD institution focused on technology transfer in the areas of electronics, automation, robotics and instrumentation is offering a licensing agreement or technical cooperation agreement for a solution that uses wireless monitoring for precision agriculture. The RTD team has been working in precision agriculture in national and European projects for more than 10 years.
The offered system is a solution based in a wireless sensor network (WSN) that allows for the detailed monitoring of abiotic parameters covering the entire length of the vineyard. This product is intended for medium and large-sized vineyards. The number of nodes is defined according to the specificities of each vine (size, gradient of the terrain, sun exposure, among others), as well as the set of sensors to be installed in them.
Main application scenarios:
• Identify the points of the vineyard with the highest risk of pests;
• Identify irrigation needs of the vineyard;
• To carry out the environmental characterization of the various sectors of the vineyard permanently or temporarily.
In comparison with traditional weather stations, this solution was designed to be compact and easily integrated into vineyards, without any impact on the handling procedures, in order to provide a distributed and scalable sensing solution with integrated actuators in the nodes.
