Introduce Technology Innovation
The agriculture industry is facing increased demands for efficiency. • Agriculture production must double by 2050 to feed the world population.
70 percent of the Earth’s fresh water is being used by the agriculture industry.
109 litres of water are required to produce 125 millilitres of wine.
Metzoo’s agriculture experts had a vision and the knowledge to improve farming efficiency with good data. They needed a team that could build a real-time, cloud-based monitoring application and durable hardware to collect data.
Three Steps to Smarter Ag
Step One: Hardware
Not every development company will build custom hardware. Our first challenge was building devices that would perform in harsh conditions. We produced rugged custom sensors that adapt for multiple farming applications.
Step Two: Application
Using a cloud-based API architecture developed using a lean process, Metzoo Smart Agro can scale for the stream of data required for smart agriculture. To provide real-time processing, we architected the application with AWS services such as Lambda and SNS.
Users can view dashboards that integrate the device collection data with information from weather services and satellites.
Step Three: Platform
Our software team deployed to a scalable managed AWS platform.
Reduce Consumption, Increase Yields
Metzoo has helped farmers save up to 30 percent on their water consumption.
Under even the harshest conditions, our hardware devices function indefinitely without attention. Farmers using Metzoo Smart Agro not only save money on water and power, they take better care of their crops and increase yields.
The Metzoo and Edrans teams continue to work together on new generations of the Smart Agrosystem.
