The creation of new smart tools helps to achieve more effective sustainability. Preserving the environment is a fundamental challenge to ensure a healthy future for all.
Therefore, one of the commitments of technology is to solve problems that arise over the years. In this sense, the need arises to contribute to the development of the rural environment in order to achieve more accessible work in the agri-food sector that is also adapted to the ecological requirements for the future.
The AFarCloud (Aggregate Farming in the Cloud) project will provide a distributed platform for autonomous farming that will enable real-time integration and cooperation of cyber physical systems (CPS) in agriculture to increase efficiency, productivity, animal health, food quality and reduce farm labour costs.
In this way, the platform will be integrated with farm management software and support monitoring and decision-making solutions based on big data and real-time data mining techniques.
AFarCloud’s achievements will be highlighted in 3 holistic demonstrators in Finland, Spain and Italy, including crop and livestock management scenarios. In addition, it will have 8 local demonstrators in Latvia, Sweden, Spain and Czech Republic, in order to test specific functionalities and validate the project results in relevant environments located in different European regions.
TST will take part in several demonstration scenarios in different EC countries in which its technology will complement that of other partners by finding solutions to typical problems in contexts such as those encountered in farms willing to introduce innovative technological elements in their daily operations.
