IoT in Agriculture: How We Manage Our Own Crops with the Internet of Things
To experiment with IoT (Internet of Things) in agriculture, Jack van den Brink, a Partner at Quistor utilised Mendix to systematically build a modern crop management solution. Brink’s Mendix-made crop management solution could be used quickly in order to deliver IoT geared solutions without the necessity of a standard wireless network. Evidently, within Mendix, Brink built a systematic dashboard that comprised of a structure which effectively monitored multiple Marvin boards and sensors to receive the data that Quistor needed. The data documented measurements of light, temperature, moisture of soil levels and humidity of the air. For example, when water levels in a tank are low, an e-mail from the generated event will be immediately sent to the Quistor team so that they know when to fill the empty water tanks. Brink built the application with his team in just a few hours and spent the remaining time to understand the sensor data that he created in Mendix’s application flows. “This small proof of concept shows how easy it is to build IoT solutions with the Mendix platform,” says Brink.
