Agriculture can be an innovative sector exploiting IoT. Not just in the The Americas as with this good example but in BRICS and developing countries.
Cattle-Watch will use Smart M2M to control IoT communications, with a web-based platform. Reports will be provided on cattle nutritional status, reproductive events, disease, and pasture quality. Location will also be tracked which will provide ranchers with theft warning notifications, and locate cattle in remote areas. Drone operations with day/ night cameras and geofencing will also be used. The reports and notifications will be sent to the rancher’s smartphone.
