How the IoT Is Helping Our Environment
The Internet of Things offers numerous applications and benefits for animals and their surroundings.
Nowadays, many of the Earth's endangered forests are being touched by wireless connection infrastructures, which enables us to use low-cost cellular plans to send data to the cloud. Here you can watch how Rainforest Connection works. The value of this IoT initiative is that activists can act immediately when illegal logging is happening. "It's no more about going out and finding a tree that's been cut. It's not about seeing a tree from a satellite area that's been cut. It's real-time intervention," said Topher White, Rainforest Connection's founder.
Applications in Agriculture
The WWF cites four main reasons for this massive waste: • leaky irrigation systems • wasteful field application methods • cultivation of thirsty crops not suited to the environment • misdirected subsidies, low public and political awareness of the crisis, and weak environmental legislation
After analysis, using a mobile app, the farmers are guided where to deploy their sensors. These sensors are meant to send soil data to the cloud, and the app calculates the optimal amount of water to be used in each zone. As result, farmers using Cropx have reported benefits such as water and energy savings of up to 25 percent, and have also been able to avoid overwatering, which is harmful for crops and can lead to chemical run-off, preventing effects for the environment around.
