For farmers and growers, the Internet of Things has opened up extremely productive ways to cultivate soil and raise livestock with the use of cheap, easy-to-install sensors and an abundance of insightful data that they offer.
Prospering on this prolific build-up of the Internet of Things in agriculture, smart farming applications are gaining ground with the promise to deliver 24/7 visibility into soil and crop health, machinery performance, storage conditions, animal behavior, and energy consumption levels.
The Kaa IoT Platform is an enterprise-grade IoT enablement technology that allows walking safely into the agriculture IoT field.
By tying together different sensors, connected devices, and farming facilities, Kaa streamlines the development of smart farming systems and provides maximum flexibility for a custom-tailored architecture design.
Kaa is perfectly applicable for single-purpose smart farming products — such as smart metering devices, livestock trackers, or failure prediction systems — as well as for multi-device solutions, among which are resource mapping and farming produce analytics solutions.
Kaa is built on a modular microservice architecture that allows for any necessary modifications, extensions, or integrations.
It is a huge advantage for companies who are planning to steadily expand their IoT device ecosystems and implement new smart farming solutions over time. Managing and upgrading your multiple solutions on a single IoT platform ensures lean operation and predictable outcomes, not the least because your own expertise adds up in a coherent manner. Out of the box, Kaa already provides a set of ready-to-use components for a quick start with smart farming applications and we made sure that you could implement any type of modern agriculture use case with Kaa.
