Demonstration application of NB-IoT in smart agriculture

In traditional agriculture, the planting process is nothing more than sowing, fertilizing, watering, and harvesting. The growers basically rely on their experience and experience. They often judge with the naked eye that the soil surface is dry or the crops are growing before starting watering and fertilizing. Starting to spray medicine is very vague for the growth cycle of crops.

Smart agriculture means uploading the detected parameters such as pH value, light intensity, ambient temperature, soil humidity, CO2 concentration and other parameters to the cloud platform for big data processing through pH sensors, light sensors, temperature sensors, humidity sensors, CO2 sensors, etc. The relatively unbalanced value can be balanced by remote control. For example, if the soil humidity is too low, the dripper system is turned on for irrigation. If the soil nutrient is too low, the drone can be remotely operated for timely fertilization.

Planters can remotely detect and control crops to ensure that crops have a suitable growth environment. By adjusting the growth conditions of crops in real time, scientific planting, quality improvement and yield increase can be achieved while increasing economic benefits.

2. Application

Chengdu Ebyte Electronic Technology Co., Ltd. is committed to independent research and development and customer customization needs. It also conducts in-depth exploration and research in the field of NB-IOT, and has achieved very good research results, which can provide comprehensive IOT analysis solutions.

Smart agriculture usually uses WiFi, Zigbee, LoRa, M2M, wired and other methods, but this technology has been unable to break through in terms of power consumption, transmission rate, cost, network coverage, and the number of network access, and it is not suitable for geographically remote environments. complicated place. With the development of NB-IOT technology, the agricultural Internet of Things has also begun to adopt NB-IOT technology. Due to its advantages such as low power consumption, low cost, wide coverage, and large capacity, it timely solves the difficulties and pain points of the current agricultural Internet of Things. It provides technical support for the agricultural Internet of things and promotes the development of the agricultural Internet of things.

The NB-IOT module is integrated with sensors such as temperature and humidity, combined with solar panels, scattered in fields, underwater, and forests, effectively monitoring soil conditions and crop growth, and uploading data to the cloud platform through NB-IOT. processing, combined with weather forecast, visual map and insect detection, etc., can grasp the disease of crops
