Semios mesh network

Semios mesh network is the communications backbone of the Semios orchard farming automation platform. The mesh network makes it possible for Semios to function without requiring numerous separate routers to extend range and enables a great deal of extra functionality.

The orchard management tool monitors data for weather, pests, soil and air temperature monitoring and also manages control of heaters, irrigation, and pest control by aerosol pheromone dispersal. This makes for a field of innumerable devices, which are all part of the mesh. Each device in the network is equipped for these purposes and also functions to relay the communications of its neighbors. In this way, Semios is able to reach greater ranges with less equipment.

The automatic, dynamically-adjusting network responds better to changing conditions in these outdoor environments partially because of its mesh topology, which relays all monitored data and allows new nodes to set up automatically. After deploying, the mesh network runs data in the background, allowing farmers to focus on their orchards with better information. They also have some of the most time-consuming tasks in water, pest and temperature control automated. The greater monitoring capacity, data visualization and system control makes it easier to provide better and more consistent conditions for the orchards, resulting in better harvests.
