JatApp goal was to create global farming intelligence solutions that would serve local farming challenges. Among them are minimizing costs and environmental impacts, reducing potential crop losses and managing risks throughout the growing season.
How it works
System includes sensor end-nodes, gateway, a cloud service, mobile and web apps
Sensors monitor set of different environment params e.g. soil and air temperature, humidity, etc.
Gateways receive telemetry stream from sensors, decode and preprocess the data and then relay information to the cloud.
Cloud hosts all the business logic, receive the incoming data from gateways and mobile scouting apps and do the data processing and calculations using analytical and reporting engine.
Sensor to gateway link is based on the LoRa protocol. Gateways send data to the cloud over 3Gcellular network and WiFi. Each node sends data every 10 minutes to the gateway over a LoRa link, where each data packet consists of up to 20 parameters.
Mobile App allows workers to send geo-tagged information from the field. Photos of plants and issues, notes and suggestions.
Web Analytical Dashboard is the key module to navigate and assess all the upcoming data and get all the information for optimal decisions.
