Real-time soil sensing connected to the cloud
LeapSoil is a conceptual idea to make real-time soil sensing connected to the cloud. The soil data can be used in the LeapCat as one of the data resources to make prescription maps. The sensor will be mounted on an agricultural machine or tractor with a small working width (higher resolution) and low speed to gather data about soil types and soil nutrients. The data should be stored in the cloud and accessible through LeapCat.
LeapCat is one of the technologies that we are currently developing and expect to launch in 2021.
The Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs)
BBLeap values open and transparent communication. This includes the stages of our technologies under development. To communicate our progress we use Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs). TRLs are developed and introduced by NASA in order to be consistent and uniform about communicating technology maturity. LeapSoil is identified to be currently in TRL 2. TRL 2 is described as “Technology concept and application formulated”.
