Abstract

The Internet of Things (IoT) technology is currently shaping different aspects of human life. Precision agriculture is one of the paradigms which can use the IoT advantages to optimize the production efficiency and uniformity across the agriculture fields, optimize the quality of the crops, and minimize the negative environmental impact. In this paper, we present an IoT architecture customized for precision agriculture applications. The proposed three-layer architecture collects the needed data and relays it to a cloud-based back-end where it is processed and analyzed. Feedback actions based on the analyzed data can be sent back to the front-end nodes. We built a prototype of the proposed architecture to demonstrate its performance advantages.
