AGRIOT LAB is a technology transfer initiative, promoted by OpenIoT Research Unit of FBK, which aims to leverage on the team’s IoT strength bringing it to the AgriTech domain. It develops high-quality low-cost sensors that use wide-coverage capabilities of LoRaWAN communication technology to transfer measured data from the fields to AGRIOT LAB proprietary IoT platform.
External collaboration activities include the integration of IoT sensor management widgets into existing farm management platforms with the aim of giving additional and useful insights to the farmers. These come from data fusion with wider image recognition and interpretation exploiting interactions with leading agronomists. AGRIOT LAB activities run within a regional ecosystem currently focusing on viticulture and apple orchard irrigation water management, but they have also a wider scope where traceability comes into the picture to foster virtuous and sustainable behaviours in agriculture practices.
