Transforming agriculture through pervasive wireless sensor networks

By Tim Wark, Peter Corke, Pavan Sikka, Lasse Klingbeil, Ying Guo, Chris Crossman, Philip Valencia, Dave Swain and Greg Bishop-Hurley


A large-scale, outdoor, pervasive computing system based on the Fleck hardware platform applies sensor network technology to farming. Comprising static and animal-borne mobile nodes, the system measures the state of a complex, dynamic system comprising climate, soil, pasture, and animals. This data supports prediction of the land's future state and improved management outcomes through closed-loop control. This article is part of a special issue, Building a Sensor-Rich World.\u
