The fuel delivery industry is changing rapidly. Competition and technology have started a major shift in business operations for fuel dealers. It is no longer sufficient to use traditional fuel delivery management and estimation techniques. Find out why propane dealers are turning to LoRa IoT technology for cost effective, industry-leading tank monitoring and how it compares to other technologies in the market place.
Connected weather stations have the ability to provide valuable crop saving/enhancing information that allows the grower to make better and more informed decision on how to manage their crop. This case study will look at three ways connected weather stations provide value to growers, today.
Where are my things? What are the conditions of my things? How do I streamline farm operations? And other questions being answered by the Internet of Things Low Power Wide Area Networks, with use cases.
In this talk, Joe Pienta, Sales Director for Sigfox North America, will showcase several IoT use cases that would not be able to be connect cost effectively without low power wide area networks (LPWAN). The use cases span several industries, from shipping to agriculture, and showcase the business benefits of the data collected from wireless devices, whose same technology can be used all throughout the farm. Through this talk, the audience can learn how IoT might be applicable in solving their challenges.
The need for in-season pest management in row crops has increased recently due to the rise of pest resistance to traits and the increasing demand for non-GMO. Many economically destructive insects in row crops migrate during the growing season. This migratory behavior is difficult to predict and can vary greatly from year to year and from region to region. In order to address this issue, Spensa has deployed over 500 Z-Traps throughout the corn belt providing growers throughout the region near real-time insect data. Spensa’s Z-Trap Network not only automatically monitors insect populations but also has the potential to accurately forecast migration patterns of these insect pests. The presentation will share the results of the current Z-Trap Network and discuss how it can help manage insects more effectively and proactively.
The next generation of sensors must operate in an ecosystem of data and interconnected decision tools. IoT devices are low cost, easy to install, wireless and have long life times, such that they can be applied by the millions. Sensoterra soil moisture sensors are built on LoRa technology and deployed in over 10 countries. Data are provided for free to our customers (growers or crop consultants), to maximize crop performance, yields and profits. We will discuss use cases and will provide a perspective of what will hit the market over the next months.
