TechRice Meetup 2016-02-17

We had the TechRice project status meeting again last night. Tokyo University might come on board for a parallel project so we discussed the logistics of how to integrate them into the overall project. Otherwise, our software stackup for the rice paddy sensor monitoring is looking good. Halfdan has been collecting data for the past few weeks with his wireless nodes, sending them to his gateway node, and then sending them up to his Postgres based server on Heroku. The data looks good and the system is stable. Next up is to cost optimize the nodes and start designing a power optimized 3G gateway device. The rice planting is in May but we look like we’re on track to meet that target.
