Transforming agriculture through pervasive wireless sensor networks
Wark, Tim, Corke, Peter, Sikka, Pavan, Klingbeil, Lasse, Guo, Ying, Crossman, Chris, Valencia, Philip, Swain, Dave, & Bishop-Hurley, Greg (2007) Transforming agriculture through pervasive wireless sensor networks. IEEE Pervasive Computing, 6(2), pp. 50-57.
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.
