“COMMONPLANS” – Cost Minimisation, Monitoring, and the internet of Plants”

The research program will deal with the design and evaluation of a distributed system-of-systems consisting of IoT devices and focusing on two main objectives; the interconnection of the “plants” and the minimisation of the use of fertilisers. The IoT system will be connected to a global cloud of things which will support connectivity to multiple devices from different locations constituting the “Internet of Plants”. It will support monitoring capabilities and information exchanges between its components and through some adaptive mechanisms will decide and predict agricultural operations like irrigation and fertilisation.
