IEI Product News:  IEI Smart Agriculture Product Selection

Based on big data analytics, smart agriculture uses a variety of sensors to collect data to meet industry needs. Data-driven decisions and actions are used to reduce the workload of agricultural workers and to increase yields.






Key data :

  • Temperature
  • Sunlight
  • Soil composition
  • Soil moisture
  • Soil pH

Application :
Differing from the traditional regular watering manner, we can now utilize technology to monitor soil moisture. When the soil moisture reaches the pre-set value, the watering system will automatically turn on to moisten the soil as needed, saving lots of water and manpower.


Animal husbandry

Key data :

  • Livestock body temperature
  • Livestock activity
  • Feeding status

Application :
We can monitor the activity content of cows to accurately detect its estrus to have greater milk yield. Monitoring a cow's body temperature can help us estimate the cows' delivery time to reduce staff visits.


Fish farming

Key data :

  • Water temperature
  • Dissolved oxygen
  • Water quality (NO2, NO3, H2S, NH4)
  • pH

Application :
Monitor the amount of dissolved oxygen in the water to set the aerator start-up time for saving electricity consumption. Monitor the change of water quality to take necessary actions, such as adding medicine or changing water.

Due to the large amount of data that need to be monitored, highly integrated computing devices are of utmost importance for the convenience of staffs.
