Winemakers Tap Internet Sensors For Grapes Data

Four German winemakers are trialing a secure Internet of Things connectivity solution to track the environmental conditions to which their grapes are exposed while on the vine. The solution consists of MyOmega System Technologiessensors for measuring the humidity and temperature of air and soil, as well as a MyOmega gateway device to collect that data, Ericsson's cloud-based Device Connection Platform, and MyOmega's TracoVino app and hosted server. The deployment is using Telenor Connexion connectivity via a 3G cellular connection that enables the forwarding of data from the vineyard to a server. The solution is intended to help winemakers identify conditions at the vineyards and predict the optimal times to fertilize, water and harvest their Riesling wine grapes.
