RedBite Solutions, a spinout from the University of Cambridge, presented at the Internet of (Agri-)Things Pollinator in February.
RedBite has developed track and trace technology that can manage large networks of data-capture devices in fields, greenhouses, packing houses and is based upon globally recognised standards for radio frequency identification (RFID).
Adrian Segens of RedBite explains: “Automatic identification technologies like RFID and QR codes mean that vital data can be captured easily, quickly and without human error. However, industries such as agriculture are not well supported by conventional IT which uses WiFi and on-premises servers.
“Our technology enables readers to store data so that none of the data they have captured is lost and instead can be uploaded when they do come within range of a network, either wireless or plugged-in to ethernet.”
The company is interested in talking to potential end-users about development of the technology.
