Name: Aggregate Farming in the Cloud

Acronym: AFarCloud 

Start date: 01/09/2018 End date: 31/08/2021

Budget: € 28.125.391,26 

Funding source: ECSEL Joint Undertaking, Grant Agreement N° 783221

Project objectives: AFarCloud will provide a distributed platform for autonomous farming that will allow the integration and cooperation of agriculture Cyber Physical Systems in real-time in order to increase efficiency, productivity, animal health, food quality and reduce farm labour costs. This platform will be integrated with farm management software and will support monitoring and decision-making solutions based on big data and real time data mining techniques

Key technology involved: Cloud services, GIS and GIS-enabled DB, IoT, containerization with Docker, Blockchain, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, drones and ground vehicles automation

Ro Technology output/expected output: In AS05 and in AS11 Ro Technology installed IoT sensors to collect and analyse environmental data. The sensors are shown on a GIS-based dashboard from where all data can be retrieved. In AS05, in the greenhouse, we also use the blockchain technology in order to store data (data integrity) and also to have a traceability system for the organic products (food traceability)
