The PROMIoTOR experiment (Low-Power Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence for the sustainability of processes in Smart Farming), was granted after the second TETRAMAX Value Chain Oriented and Interdisciplinary Technology Experiment call and joins EMBIO Diagnostics, AIR institute and TAMIC. They aimed to improve the production processes of crops and the impact on the environment, by reducing the use of resources such as water, energy and the carbon footprint, using low-consumption IoT technologies and Deep Learning algorithms. An intelligent platform will use this data from IoT agri-meteo stations and predict and recommend the best practices to improve sustainability in precision agriculture such as vineyards, olive plantations or tomato orchards,.
During the High Tech Cyprus exhibition on 4th-5th October in Limassol EMBIO, a partner in the PROMIoTOR experiment, had the opportunity to demonstrate its platform to various local and international users. In this picture below you can see the installation of PROMIoTOR systems in the Cypriot field for testing. The installation is currently under operation and gathering agricultural data.
TETRAMAX is a Horizon 2020 innovation action within the European Smart Anything Everywhere (SAE) initiative in the domain of customized and low-energy computing for Cyber Physical Systems and the Internet of Things. As a Digital Innovation Hub, TETRAMAX aims to bring added value to European industry, helping to gain competitive advantage through faster digitization. The project partially builds on experiences with the TETRACOM project during 2013-2016. TETRAMAX was launched in Sep 2017 and runs until Dec 2021.
