Sensor Data Collection Hub

The Data Collection Hub receives the temperature and humidity data from multiple ITB Sensors in grain bags nearby (e.g., kept locally in a farmer home or university lab). Upon receiving an update from the ITB Sensors, the hub will analyze the data to determine any out-of-range parameters to verify the condition of the grain and if it is in jeopardy. If immediate action is required to preserve the quality of the grain, the hub will send a text message to the farmer’s cellphone (smartphones not typically available) through the available cellular network, in addition it will also send a message to the web portal.
