InAE integrates data collected by different sensors, expert recommendations and farmer’s own experience. The analysis of these data yields information that can orientate farmers in making decisions on irrigation of their crops.
Sensors can monitor variables such as soil humidity, climate state, sunlight or sun radiation, among others. This information is collected and then sent to INAR cloud. There, data are processed along with other available information (climatology and weather forecast, expert advice depending on the crop type and farmer’s regular water use patterns). Thanks to Artificial Intelligence, data is transformed into information reaches the user in a simple and clear way.
This system has been funded by the second Call of the DIVA European Project (GRANT AGREEMENT N. 777890), maturation projects section (https://www.projectdiva.eu/).
