Networking Field Trials Begin
One of the biggest challenges of deploying sensor technologies in agriculture is networking. Long distances, dense foliage, and the generally rough environment make setting up and maintaining connectivity very challenging. This is particularly true in permanent crops like Almonds, Walnuts and Pistachios. To solve this problem, we have incorporated LoRa based communications technology manufactured by our partner MultiTech into our solution. Our testing to date has shown LoRa provides excellent range and reliability and now we are putting it to the real test in field trials in central California. We plan on sharing the results and we are confident you’ll be as impressed with LoRa as we are.
