Based on the Internet of Things, the Smart Precision Feeding System for Intelligent Farming
In traditional farming, feed costs account for 70% of the total farming expenses. Due to the different nutritional requirements of individual piglets at different stages, weights, and ages, conventional standardized feed production and batch feeding methods lead to significant feed wastage. This not only keeps the farming costs high but also fails to meet the maximum nutritional needs of the piglets. Ensuring that pigs eat what they need and when they need it has become a challenge for operators. To address this issue, the Four-Signal Intelligent Gateway, integrated with AIoT hardware devices such as precision feeders and fat regulators, utilizes technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing in the industrial internet sector. It aims to achieve intelligent adjustment of the mother pigs' physical condition, precise individual nutritional management, accurate automatic feeding, and free-choice feeding, providing a comprehensive solution.
By connecting multiple feeders to the Four-Faith Intelligent Gateway through its 485 interface, the gateway can establish a connection with the platform via wired/4G/5G network. This enables remote operations such as feeding, water supply, cleaning, and downloading feeder programs. Additionally, the gateway allows for real-time data collection and display.
Communication Technology Features
Compared to previous communication technologies like 3G, 4G communication technology has shown a significant improvement in speed.
The 4G communication system incorporates advanced technologies such as Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) for multiple access, smart antennas, spatial coding techniques, and wireless link enhancement.
The 4G communication system utilizes new modulation techniques such as Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) for multi-carrier modulation and Single Carrier Adaptive Equalization (SCAE) to ensure efficient spectrum utilization and prolong the battery life of user terminals.
It leverages the existing infrastructure of network operators, eliminating the need for expensive network construction and maintenance costs. It provides high real-time performance and low network deployment costs due to its wide distribution of access points.
It supports universal network coverage and adoption, ensuring compatibility with network operators' Access Point Names (APNs) and ensuring secure and reliable data communication.
