Description of Arduino Edge Control:

A remote monitoring and control solution, optimised for outdoor environments. Collect real-time data from smart sensors and leverage everything to the edge, in your smart farm management.

It can be placed anywhere and is suitable for precision farming, smart farming and other applications requiring intelligent control in remote locations. Power can be supplied via a solar panel or DC input.

Remotely control your application via the Arduino Cloud (or third-party services) using a selection of location-appropriate connectivity options. The Arduino Edge Control features built-in Bluetooth and its connectivity can be expanded with 2G / 3G / CatM1 / NB-IoT, LoRa®, Sigfox and WiFi modems by adding any of the MKR boards.

The key to Edge Control

  • - REAL-TIME DATA: Collect real-time data from smart sensors.
  • - AI AT THE EDGE: Right where things happen
  • - CONTROL: Remote locations via the cloud
  • - RUNS ON SOLAR POWER: Plus battery backup

 

The Arduino Edge Control is able to connect sensors and drive actuators such as shut-off valves (common in agriculture). In addition, it has the ability to provide real-time monitoring of the entire process, reducing production-related risks. Particularly suitable for smart farming, the sensors can collect real-time data such as weather conditions, soil quality, crop growth, etc. Once sent to the Arduino Cloud, the data value chain becomes valuable analytics that support business processes at various levels (e.g. crop yield, equipment efficiency, staff performance, etc.).

The Arduino Edge Control has the ability to improve crop quality and reduce human effort/error by automating processes such as irrigation, fertilisation or pest control.

Application Examples 

There are many examples where to use this new Arduino Edge Control, we show you some of them, and why it is optimal for its use.

Automated Greenhouses

Automatically manage the humidity and temperature to ensure the best environment for crop growth, minimising carbon emissions and increasing economic yield. The inclusion of an Arduino MKR GPS Shield allows for optimum crop rotation planning and acquisition of geospatial data.

Hydroponics/Aquaponics



Since hydroponics involves the growth of plants without soil, delicate care must be taken to maintain the conditions required for optimum growth. The Arduino Edge Control can be set-up to control these conditions with minimal manual labour.

The Arduino Edge Control can help match the even higher requirements of Aquaponics, by providing automated control over the internal process and reducing production risks.

Mushroom Cultivation

 Mushrooms are notorious for requiring the perfect temperature and humidity conditions to sustain spore growth, while also preventing competing fungi from growing. Thanks to the numerous watermark sensors, output ports and connectivity options available on the Arduino Edge Control, this precision farming can be achieved on an unprecedented level.
