Agriculture

Use Cases

According to the World Economic Forum, by 2050, when the global population is expected to reach 9.8 billion, the demand for food will be 60% higher than it is today. The negative trend in climate change, urbanization, and soil degradation require increasing yield by smart agriculture. Our customers are trying to adopt technology to measure and analyze resource consumption and reduce costs through intelligent automation and improved workflows.

In this section, you can find some examples of how SolidRun creates value for our OEMs / Integrators customers in the Agriculture applications segment. For confidentiality reasons, customer names are not mentioned.

Next generation harvesting 2
  • Next Generation Harvesting

    During the last decade, drones have been used by farmers across the globe to determine soil and crop conditions and also spray crops in an effective way. The next disruptive innovation is autonomous harvesting of crops by an airborne robotics platform overcoming the complex tasks of picking, thinning, and pruning orchards based on AI algorithms.

  • OUR ADDED VALUE

    Product: i.MX8M Mini SOM
    Services: None
    Based on provided schematics and support, the customer designed his own carrier board that serves as both, management and controller unit.

  • Tractors as a Network Hub

    Getting internet access in the countryside can be a tricky business. An edge gateway installed on tractors can provide an LTE based Wi-Fi hotspot on the one hand, while also aggregating IoT data from various sensors, on the other.

  • OUR ADDED VALUE

    Product: SolidSense N6 Edge Gateway
    Services: None
    The advanced fanless getaway that has a wide power input range allowing it to be powered by the heavy equipment itself, includes LTE modem, Wi-Fi and BLE capabilities in an industrial form factor.
