Resumen:
Una pyme británica con experiencia en ingeniería agrícola ha desarrollado un software para Android que, combinado con un receptor externo de GPS, ayuda a los agricultores a realizar actividades en campo de forma más eficiente. El sistema captura en una tableta los datos del tratamiento según se aplica y envía la información a un portal en la nube, permitiendo abrir interfaces de programación de aplicaciones (API) en otras plataformas. La empresa busca socios con el fin de adaptar el sistema a nuevas aplicaciones (agricultura, horticultura y viticultura) y mercados mediante acuerdos de licencia y joint venture.

Tittle:
Agricultural GPS guidance and data tracking system with potential use in new applications
Summary:
A UK SME has developed an Android software product which when combined with an external GPS receiver, helps farmers carry out field operations more efficiently. It tracks and logs (on a cloud platform) the as-applied treatment data recording the geo-referenced path of the implement width. Partners are sought to develop applications and new markets by license or joint venture. These applications are likely to be in agriculture, horticulture and viticulture driven by a proof of placement need.
Description:
This offer is from an SME based in N.Ireland with expertise in agricultural engineering, who is looking for a small or large industrial company, probably manufacturing agricultural implements or vehicles. In agriculture, if a field or paddock is being treated by any mechanised means it is important to minimise the cost of fuel, or any inputs (eg fertiliser) that are being used, and at the same time ensure that all the crop has been treated. The higher the value of the crop or input, the more important this is. Also, if the treatment is being carried out under contract it is important to be able to demonstrate "proof of placement" and record job statistics.
This system incorporates innovative software, a cloud based platform for uploading and storing data, the hardware to install on a tractor, other implement or a vehicle can be supplied also. The system is currently being re-sold as a cab retrofit by tractor and machinery dealers aimed predominately at grass based farming but there is vast scope to use the system in other ways or in other applications. For example it could be integrated by an OEM into an implement such as a crop sprayer. However there are many other potential applications such as golf course maintenance, or road / runway maintenance.
The possible cooperation types sought are a license agreement (to perhaps integrate the system software into an existing implement or machine), or a commerical agreement with technical assistance (to perhaps buy complete units and get technical help to integrate them) . The ideal outcome of a partnership would be higher value sales of the host machinery and more sales of the client´s software and/or hardware.
Advantages and Innovations:
The key innovation is that the system captures the "as applied" treatment data on a tablet and sends it to a cloud portal where it is possible to open up application programming interfaces (API´s) to other platforms. It´s other advantage is the ease of use and it can be adapted for different applications within agriculture viticulture and horticulture where simple GPS based guidance and proof of placement is required.
