nquiringminds leads Indo-UK project
17 November 2017
nquiringminds is deploying its Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to help Indian farmers cut down on post-harvest spoilage and maintain the quality of their stored and dried grains.
In an Indo-UK humanitarian Newton Funded project, entitled GrainCare, the Science Park-based IoT company is working to develop low cost humidity sensors and mobile apps for monitoring and preventing problems with grain storage across the Indian sub-continent. Through the project, Indian farmers will change their processes and management of grain and get mobile alerts regarding moisture or temperature rises during drying and storage. They will also be provided with solutions to the various problems detected to enable them to act immediately to prevent losses in both quality and quantity.
