Enabling IoT in agriculture
Ericsson, Vivo, Raízen and EsalqTec, Brazil
Current agriculture in Brazil is not sustainable due to large inefficiencies in the use of resources.
The implementation of IoT devices on farms, generates information that is captured and made available by the LTE 450MHz and IoT platform infrastructure.
IoT in agriculture brings increased productivity to agribusiness, as well as reduced operational costs, optimized allocation of equipment and machinery, and the possibility to develop innovative use cases through the agriculture ICT ecosystem.
Supporting sustainability goals
The highlighted sustainability goals are included in the project.
"The Internet of Things is quickly emerging as a very significant agent of transformation as it blends the physical and digital worlds. By cooperating with Ericsson's Networked Society Lab, we will better understand and be at the forefront of how we can sustainably improve agriculture, smart cities, energy and industrial production, among other areas, in Brazil."
- André Figueiredo, Minister of Communications, Brazil
