SIP Leader: PSNC (Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center)

Sector: sugar beet and potatoes

Country of the pilot: Poland

Partners involved: PSNC: SIP leader, ADS provider
L-PIT: GR: ADS provider, DIH WODR: advisor

Target group: farmers wanting to increase irrigation efficiency and save on water consumption

Technology used:
The edge-based ADS uses:

  • open-source embedded system based on Linux,
  • LoRaWAN mesh for wireless communication,
  • Geospastial data tagging with GNSS modules,
  • Inductive class of sensors with digital data output

The cloud-based ADS uses:

  • Message broker for edge communication based on MQTT – RabbitMQ,
  • Timeseries DB – InfluxDB
  • Central event streaming- Apache Kafka
  • Architecture supported with Java Spring
Short description and goal: The ADS provides a smart irrigation controller, connected to irrigation valves, capable of integrating with soil moisture sensors and FMISs. It enables automated irrigation of the fields, allowing for the optimisation of the doses using data on the rainfall, evapotranspiration, water needs of plants, temperature effects and soil type, which are obtained from external datasets: weather stations, soil maps, weather forecasts and satellite data
