Cost-efficient Localisation System for Agricultural Use Cases

Abstract

Connected agricultural applications often depend on exact localisation solutions. Often the term “precision agriculture” implies a technology that identifies the location of the livestock, crop, field of agricultural machinery with more or less of precision. While precision requirements vary, the localisation often has to be quite precise like sub-meter or even decimeter precision. Dual-band GPS solutions are able to satisfy these high-precision requirements but these equipments are quite costly and their purchase is often regulated. This paper presents two agricultural use cases and the combination of low-cost GPS and short-range localisation systems that are able to satisfy high-precision requirements for fraction of the costs of dual-band GPS.
