The Syngenta Sensors Centre is researching Sensing Systems and Information Communications Technologies (ICT) for agriculture and farming, but with a central focus on sensors and knowledge-based approaches to support agriculture and farming of the future.
Within this remit the Centre is working in several areas, including:
- New sensing technologies
- Wireless sensor networks
- Energy harvesting
- Information and knowledge management
The Centre has a strategic interest in defining the ICT infrastructure and platforms for farming and agriculture, and identifying the actions and research necessary to bring about the realisation of this ICT infrastructure.
The Centre is also interested in the farm-to-fork supply chain and how the technologies of interest can help to improve food quality and reduce environmental burdens.
