NEW TECHNOLOGY HAS GAME-CHANGING POTENTIAL FOR GRAIN STORAGE MONITORING
The BeanIoT system deploys thumb-sized “smart” sensors to monitor whatever the user requires. In a grain storage shed or bin that might be temperature, humidity, or insect movements. The sensors provide detailed, layered data that give a complete picture of what’s going on at multiple locations and at any point in time.
“These units, which could be either thrust or deposited into the grain, are at a level that you can have a high density of information,” says Andrew Holland, founder and CEO of RF Module and Optical Design Limited (RFMOD), developer of the BeanIoT technology. “Our system provides lots of physical positions across the grain stack, so the farmer is not going to miss any untoward activity like hot spots, mould growth, insect infestation, and so forth.”
