Variable Rate Analysis and Prescription in real time.
The Device - a roof mounted multi spectral camera, which scans the field ahead of the tractor, and using a powerful processor, analyses the images in real time. Sophisticated agronomy software running inside the device calculates the optimal dose of crop inputs that need to be applies to a specific area within a crop. The prescription is sent to the variable rate spreader or sprayer being drawn by the tractor in order to execute the prescription in real time.
The In-Cabin App - The android based tablet which is part of the package when you buy the Field Analyzer is initially used to set up the Augmenta Field Analyzer device. The tablet connects to the device via wifi, so there is no need to worry about additional wiring or harnesses. Once the tablet is linked to the device, it is then used to monitor what the device is scanning and what prescriptive decisions are being made.
The Web App - The system collects and stores a significant amount of data so that it can be uploaded for subsequent analysis via the cloud. So once the data has been uploaded, it can be viewed by anyone with access to the app anywhere, reports can be run and savings can be quantified. The web app gives you the opportunity to assess the crop condition of a field and within a field by way of a vegetative Index map. You may also assess application map after the field has been completed to quantitatively assess application across the field. There is a 3rd feature where snapshots are taken of areas of interest within the field. That is an actual photograph of the field is taken when there is a sharp change in vegetation index so that you can see what is happening on the ground as you would see to the naked eye.
All of the important aspects of the field health, input application and some further statistics can be downloaded into a concise PDF report in the click of a button. The additional statistics include those relating to input savings across the field which is an important metric.
