SEARAN enabled Climate Corporation, a subsidiary of Monsanto Company, to integrate Bluetooth connectivity into the Climate FieldView DriveTM, – the industry’s first digital in-field sensor network and data management system. Climate’s new sensor network creates a true digital ag ecosystem to support the important agronomic decisions farmers make each season to protect and increase yield.1
Climate FieldView DriveTM was developed using SEARAN’s embedded Bluetooth software stack protocols and profiles, dotstsackTM . SEARAN helped Climate develop and test the Bluetooth connectivity between FieldView DriveTM and host devices, iPADs and Android tablets, operating continuously over several weeks on dozens of systems collecting and streaming data simultaneously.
First deployed in 2016 the Climate FieldView DriveTM platform is now operating on millions of acres and is installed on thousands of agricultural machines working 24/7 in harsh environment, in presence of two-way radios and WiFi interference, and continuously streaming data via Bluetooth 4.0 to iPADs and Android tablets.
