Price of TRON explodes after meeting
IOTA co-founder Dominik Schiener
The project focuses on the technology and its use for decentralized data storage via the Internet of Things. Currently, a test installation based on a water meter with GPS module and pressure sensor is being set up at the Geisenheim University of Applied Sciences. In addition to exploring possible further applications, the test bed will be used to show how digital water meters together with the Tangle can be used to ensure efficient irrigation. IOTA co-founder Dominik Schiener presented another local and IOTA based project from Germany. Via Twitter Schiener wrote that the regional office for agriculture Hessen, the IOTA Foundation and peerOS have been working on the cooperation project “iotAgrar” since May 1st.
The first application will be the real-time visualization of the data via the GeoBox viewer, according to the official announcement:On a module developed by peerOs, the sensor data determined are encoded into the IOTA protocol and portioned into the necessary data size. These data packets are then sent via LoRa radio to an LTE gateway and from there written to the DLT platform (Tangle). From this Tangle, which is to be understood as a standardised data interface, the real-time visualisation of the data is then realised via the GeoBox viewer.
This information could be used to weigh up whether it makes sense in terms of performance to start another irrigation. This could prevent the pumps integrated in the pipe system from running outside their optimal range of action, thus making irrigation energetically inefficient. By combining the water meter with a GPS module, it is possible to allocate the measured water consumption specifically to the respective crops and thus create a product-related water footprint.
