Smart Agriculture Gateway 2023 USE CASE CHALLENGE The most frequent challenge farmers face is how to continuously monitor weather and soil conditions – and adjust irrigation accordingly. In the current market, it is not easy to find a smart agriculture solution that can handle all the necessary sensors and correlate all the measurements on one platform. LoRaWAN ® can enable smart agriculture by allowing farmers to collect data from the various sensors deployed in their fields and transmit that data to a unified cloud platform. SOLUTION TEKTELIC Communications, in partnership with Mockingbird Consulting, offers the LoRaWAN -enabled KIWI sensor. Once deployed, the sensor measures soil conditions, such as temperature and moisture, and monitors the ambient environment, including light, humidity, and air temperature.
