To be officially launched in October, Fujitsu says that the new project will use remote field sensors all over Japan. A cloud-based platform will be provided in order to help Japan’s old farms. Named as “Akisai”, the service will combine data from various network cameras and sensors in order to monitor humidity, rainfall, moisture, and soil temperature. Using mobile phones and tablets, farmers can also input crop information into the system. Because of the data gathered, farmers can ensure crop profitability and lessen expenses. Fujitsu will market the service not only to farmers but also to restaurant chains, food processors, and wholesalers.
