IoT sensors and Intel-based IoT gateways connected to a cloud service will enable wine makers to collect data on air, soil humidity, temperature and solar intensity. They can use the data to perform predictive analysis and to support resource management and real-time remote monitoring. Quality production, lower costs and reduced environmental impact are the main benefits to wine makers.
The size of the wine industry export is EUR 26 billion according to a market research International organization of Vine and Wine (OIV).
MyOmega will offer TracoVino services and solutions to wine makers. Telenor Connexion includes Ericsson’s IoT service based on the Ericsson Device Connection Platform (DCP) integrated with the Authentication Federation Gateway.
Intel will supply processors and LTE modems for IoT gateways and MyOmega System Technologies, headquartered in Nuremberg, Germany, will provide sensor and gateway hardware and software.
