Abstract

The world has been evolving and technology has been growing by its side. The advancement in technology isn’t linear, instead, it is exponential. Even though, Mark D. Weiser didn’t bring the name ”IoT” to public ears, he was the ”father” of Ubiquitous Computing, a concept where computers can be anywhere at anytime without being perceived. ”The most profound technologies are those that disappear. They weave themselves into the fabric of everyday life until they are indistinguishable from it.” Population is in a constant growth reaching to its current value of 7.7 billion, estimated by 2055 to reach 10 billion. This increase will directly affect the total amount of food consumption, which leads to discover new efficient techniques on agriculture. This is where the IoT and agriculture will meet. The world has Least Developed Countries and isolated areas which suffer from great poverty. They feed themselves from their own agriculture, but they do not produce as much as it is needed to sustain their economical income. Since these people do not have the amount of employees needed to produce in larger lands, they need to raise their productivity. The most efficient way to raise productivity is by inserting new technologies to their procedures. The problem is; these areas are underdeveloped or isolated, meaning commercial telecommunication technologies are not available which is an obstacle when connecting to IoT devices. Is it possible to help this people prevail by creating a design of an IoT implementation supported in these areas?
