Agriculture plays a vital role in a country's growth. Modern-day technologies drive every domain toward smart systems. The use of traditional agricultural procedures to satisfy modern-day requirements is a challenging task. Cloud IoT Systems for Smart Agricultural Engineering provides substantial coverage of various challenges of the agriculture domain through modern technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, and many more.
This book offers various state-of-the-art procedures to be deployed in a wide range of agricultural activities. The concepts are discussed with the necessary implementations and clear examples. Necessary illustrations are depicted in the chapters to ensure the effective delivery of the proposed concepts. It presents the rapid advancement of the technologies in the existing agricultural model by applying the cloud IoT techniques. A wide variety of novel architectural solutions are discussed in various chapters of this book.
This book provides comprehensive coverage of the most essential topics, including:
New approaches on urban and vertical farming
Smart crop management for Indian farmers
Smart livestock management
Precision agriculture using geographical information systems
Machine learning techniques combined with IoT for smart agriculture
Effective use of drones in smart agriculture
This book provides solutions for the diverse domain of problems in agricultural engineering. It can be used at the basic and intermediary levels for agricultural science and engineering graduate students, researchers, and practitioners.
