The only limitation to the IoT’s reach is one’s imagination. Wine makers are now employing inexpensive IoT sensors to their grape vines. The small, solar-powered sensors capture data around metrics including temperature, water levels and humidity to improve operations, and help prevent vine disease. As with most remote devices like those used for wildlife reserves, the vineyard IoT applications include technology like BeWhere sensors, Huawei chips and Canada Bell’s new wireless network, “LTE-M,” a low power, wide-range network.
Another fascinating application of the Internet of Things that is transforming the way in which businesses operate. By gathering real-time data from IoT sensors, vineyard operation can react more quickly to environmental factors. Even further, by applying machine learning to the process, operators view predictive analytics to determine quality characteristics of a crop to drive pricing, distribution and other business factors,
