Wireless Sensor Networks and Remote Sensing - Foundation of a Modern Agricultural Infrastructure in the Region

Ziel

Current trends in agricultural production are based on advanced technologies, including the extensive application of information technologies. In particular, the usage of wireless sensor networks (WSN) and remote sensing (RS) ensure timely in-field access to data and enable prompt reactions. Measures can be administered with more precision and effectiveness, thus providing higher food quality, environmental protection and considerable savings. In addition, a better understanding of underlying processes, and validation and adjustments of the used models can be achieved. Agriculture is one of the principal business affairs in WBC region. This especially holds for the Province of Vojvodina, a regional leader in which agriculture represents 40% of GDP. However, the use of IT support is missing, and its introduction in the regional agricultural infrastructure is of the highest importance. Networking and exchange of know-how within this project will lead to the reinforcement of the research potential and provide a substantial support for further development of modern agriculture in the region. Coordinating institution for the project is the Centre for Measurement Technologies in Precision Agriculture (MeTeP@), founded at the University of Novi Sad, the leading academic institution in Vojvodina. The consortium members for this project have been carefully chosen to initiate the coordination of research activities in the fields of WSN and RS applied to the precision agriculture. Through this project MeTeP@ will improve its research potential and human resources by networking with EU partners, which will lead to a long-term cooperation. MeTeP@ expects to broaden both its knowledge and technical basis regarding WSN and RS, and offer new employment possibilities for researchers in the future. As a final point, both the research community and the WBC agricultural system will benefit from the results of this cooperation.
