Research in big data and distributed IoT platforms in smart agriculture scenario

Saving energy and water in irrigated crops.

With the impact of climate change being felt by farmers across the EU, the need for irrigation has become a growing problem. Saving water and saving energy are also key challenges for farmers. Many of the national modernized. Irrigation systems are closed solutions, limiting their interoperability and extension mechanisms.

This pilot aims to optimize the irrigation of herbaceous crops by improving the automation of irrigation areas. Using open systems and standards-based technologies, it will allow irrigation communities to choose and combine hardware and software from different vendors to ensure interoperability.

The use of interoperable remote control systems and robust management systems, input from both soil sensors and weather stations, as well as satellite images, will optimize the irrigation system.

The use of real-time monitoring and control of improvements is based on informed decisions from farm to fork. The adoption of standards and open protocols facilitate the integration of standards-compliant IoT devices.

The implementation of standards and interoperable elements will facilitate the operation and maintenance of irrigation systems, achieving a level of long-term investment security.

The project has been developed with the help of the Center for Industrial Technological Development (CDTI) of the Ministry of Industry, Economy and Competitiveness, and co-financed by the European Union (FEDER Funds) through the Pluriregional Operational Program of Spain (2014-2020).
