What is the main problem you have identified:
Smart Agriculture is highly dependent on IoT integrations and autonomous robots. In addition, advanced data analytics and AI/ML capabilities are needed to provide near real-time insight into the field data. The dependency on various technology stacks with diverse QoS requirements poses a challenge on the services providers.
This catalyst tries to address a few of these challenges with the implementation of smart agriculture use cases and to provide a blueprint for scalability, and optimization.
How will this project team solve the challenge or problem:
We expect that smart agriculture pain points can be solved using the following technologies (but not limited to):
• Network Slicing
• MEC Orchestration
• Edge AI/ML application framework
How will the success of the solution be measured:
The following use cases will need to be demonstrated:
a. An integrated solution to meet the demand of smart agriculture leveraging on the 5G technologies like network slicing, MEC, AI to meet the latency and data throughput requirements.
b. A fully functional MEC framework addressing challenges like Heterogeneity in the deployment environment, life cycle management, future proof design, vertical industry requirements, and zero-touch network.
c. A strategy for seamless deployment of AI/ML application and POC for Smart Agriculture IoT and robotics integration.
The following outcomes are expected from this catalyst:
a. Integrated solution architecture for smart agriculture
b. A MEC framework for orchestration and automation
c. A strategy paper for seamless deployment of AI/ML application at the edge
d. A POC for Smart Agriculture IoT and robotics integration.
