Innovation prize for the Sensing4Farming smart farming project
The fifteenth Autelsi Awards, announced last February 4, hailed the Sensing4Farming initiative of Vodafone and DigitalGlobe as applied to the Bodegas Emilio Moro winery, praising it for its “technological, productivity-boosting innovation”.
Sensing4Farming represents a new paradigm in the world of smart, digital and precision farming. GMV is acting as technological provider to this trailblazing initiative in the application of IoT-based field-sensing technology to earth observation for the processing of satellite data and advanced and integrated analysis of Big Databases.
The solution taps into GMV’s WInEO service for the advanced analysis of geospatial data to support decision-making procedures in farming. The most advanced satellite-data analysis technologies integrated with data from several ground sensors provide information on the crop growth of the vinery and high added-value agroclimate indices for smart vineyard management.
Thanks to Sensing4Farming, Bodegas Emilio Moro will improve the management of its vines, its crop quality and replicability and cost control while also cutting down the consumption of water, fertilizers and power to reduce the overall environmental impact.
The Autelsi Awards have now become a benchmark prize-giving scheme in the information and communication technology sector, recognizing the innovation and excellence of projects and initiatives carried out by both public and private organizations in this field, as well as the standout ICT-driving institutions. The prize-giving ceremony will be held in Madrid on 21 March.
