Ten years without charge
Since the Lace system can transfer data over dozens of kilometers, use of autonomous measuring instruments can find wide agricultural applications, for example:
- soil acidity control
- hydrographic data collection
- monitoring of agricultural products’ quality during storage and transportation.
Today in China, the implementation of the Internet of Things is going, so to speak, in full throttle. Companies such as China Telecom and Nunyi develop solutions on different stages of production, distribution and realization of agricultural products.
Agriculture and environment protection
Historically and technologically, agriculture is in perfect step with environmental protection tasks. Therefore, today, the topic of the Internet of Things is more and more closely interweaved with the topic of human-to-nature interaction. Monitoring of water quality, changes in atmospheric effects, sun intensity – these are only the most evident and universal uses of “smart sensors”. Form-factors of the sensors compatible with the Lace system have become so small that they can already be used in the monitoring of flora and fauna migration. Durability (the ability to work without recharge for more than a decade), resistance to environmental impact, and ability to transfer data for dozens and even hundreds of kilometers make the Lace-compatible sensors indispensable in such areas as earthquake and tsunami early warning systems.
