gaiatron agrometeorological stations provide an attachment id! gaiasense provides valuable information by recording, analyzing and interpreting atmospheric and soil data at specific points within the fields every passing moment, continuously. These data are collected from agrometeorological stations, which are installed in selected points of selected plots of land to be representative for each crop of an entire area. The stations are manufactured, installed and operated by gaiasense, without any financial burden to the cooperating producers or agricultural advisors. They have been designed and developed specifically to meet the needs of gaiasense services and are part of an extensive nationwide network of measuring environmental parameters. The agrometeorological stations of gaiasense are installed in various regions of Greece – from Evros to Crete – and abroad, collecting a huge amount of atmospheric and soil data, which are used to optimize agricultural production through smart agricultural advice. In this way, a complete technological system of continuous monitoring of the environmental parameters affecting the crops is created. The data collected by the stations concern atmospheric, soil and biological parameters, such as air and soil temperature, relative air and soil humidity, soil salinity, leaf wetness, precipitation, solar radiation, etc. The information of the gaiasense is combined with the information collected by the system and is used to accurately calculate the plant’s need for water, to identify the appropriate time for watering, to continuously assess the risk of plant attack by pests and diseases, to monitor the vitality of plants, in their rational nutrition and in the timely qualitative and quantitative prediction of production. Development of telemetric stations NEUROPUBLIC, which has developed and supports the gaiasense smart farming system, has a modern laboratory within the Embedded Systems / IoT (Embedded / IoT R&D) department. Combining highly skilled manpower with years of electronics development experience and state-of-the-art equipment, the company’s lab offers a flexible and powerful incubator for IoT solutions in the agricultural sector. NEUROPUBLIC designs and develops the entire IoT infrastructure for the gaiasense system: all the systems that make up the telemetric agrometeorological stations (in terms of hardware, firmware and software), the systems/platforms for real-time data acquisition, relaying, collection and ensuring the accuracy and validity of all indications, as well as their interconnection and communication (IP, m2m protocols). IoT infrastructure NEUROPUBLIC has developed the first and only large-scale Internet of Things infrastructure in Greece, with thousands of self-designed and manufactured wireless sensors installed on agricultural land as part of the gaiasense smart farming system. At the same time, the agrometeorological stations use embedded technology and IP protocol, making it possible, via the Internet, to transmit in real time the data they collect from the field and concern atmospheric, terrestrial and biological parameters. Each of the agrometeorological stations is equipped with several dozens of sensors that measure environmental (atmospheric and soil) parameters at multiple points. At regular intervals, a large volume of automatic measurements is collected on the special IoT platform in the company’s cloud infrastructure. There, this data is combined with satellite data and other types of data, and feeds into decision support systems that give advice and guidance to agronomists and farmers on day-to-day farming operations.
