The new innovation network “SuNinLand – Sensors and Networks in Agriculture” will contribute to the digitalization of agriculture with innovative and user-driven technology developments starting in spring 2023.
Along the following themes, the network will be developed:
|Agricultural machinery: Platform-independent sensor technology.|
Examples: Sensors for determining the position of vehicles, sensor technology for monitoring the condition of agricultural machinery (acceleration sensors, angular rate sensors, etc.), digital solutions for crop monitoring and processing.
|Plants: Single plant detection and non-destructive plant phenotyping.|
Examples: Nutritional status of plants, disease and pest infestation and quality of harvest-ready products (biomass, chlorophyll content), ingredients of grain crops and legumes (protein, oil), dry matter determination, crude protein feed.
|Soil: Soil Condition Survey.|
Examples: Sensors for soil moisture, nutrient balance, conductivity, pH, pest infestation, organic matter, etc.
|Data: Sensor networks for decision support systems and data management. Examples: Data volume reduction, pre-processing on the sensor, real-time data acquisition and analysis (tactile internet), data evaluation algorithms using artificial intelligence.|

The network focuses on the development of concepts, processes, technologies and applications for the digitalization of agriculture. Novel, sensor data-based technology modules are to be developed that make a measurable contribution to sustainable agriculture.
The objective of the network is to research and develop methods, procedures, techniques and exemplary applications to collect data on the condition of plants, soil and machines in the context of digital agriculture using heterogeneous sensor systems, to process these data using suitable data processing procedures and to make them available to users.
In the network, various technical and technological sub-goals are to be developed and tested on the basis of concrete use cases. The R&D activities required for this address the following specific development needs, among others:
