Farmland Automation Project
The agricultural sector largely relies on 20th century technology to manage farmlands which potentially leads to millions of dollars in wastage of resources. The idea here is to make agriculture of the future as automated as possible. We have designed farmland IoT automation tools to understand the different environmental factors affecting yield and in maximizing water, fertilizer and cultivation efficiency. As things stand now, we are planning to utilize visual learning through artificial intelligence to quantify crop yield, understand flood and drought patterns across the region.
We have designed and implemented the initial phase of IoT farmland automation technology in India. This design costs one third of the current technology implemented across European farmlands while being as efficient and long lasting. We plan on scaling this into a spinoff and are looking at Europe right now as a potential market.
