The ability to constantly monitor and remotely control smart agriculture devices is crucial. Agriculture products often need to function 24/7, and there is not always a quick way to physically reach them in the event of an issue. Upswift's IoT platform has been developed for exactly such an eventuality.
John, an arable farmer, uses smart devices in his fields which monitor soil moisture, analyse this data, and use it to regulate irrigation. However, the application that has been shipped with those devices has a fault that sporadically stops the irrigation on hot days. The consequences of this software bug are potentially devastating: his entire crop could be lost. In this case, the ability to remotely update the software for the entire fleet of smart devices is essential – and this is where Upswift comes in.
Upswift provides multiple tools under one cloud platform that are crucial for the day-to-day management of smart agriculture IoT products.
