MCS brings ICT into the farming industry by developing the Intelligent Agriculture System (iAS). Over the past few years, we have undertaken extensive research and development of this technology together with our tester - a volunteer farmer who is as passionate about intelligent farming system as we are.
Our primary goal is to help farmers cultivate quality, high-yielding crop with the least amount of resources and ultimately achieve sustainable agriculture practice. MCS acknowledges that many of the farmers are willing to invest in farming technology, but are driven away by the high initial acquisition cost of existing products in the market. Therefore, we at MCS have taken up the challenge to design iAS as a modular system where the farmer need only pay for the necessary features, nothing more.
MCS iAS is an extremely customizable and flexible system that can be deployed in a wide range of farming systems, such as conventional soil-based agriculture, aquaculture, hydroponics and aquaponics – a sustainable food production system that combines conventional aquaculture with hydroponics in a symbiotic environment.
A variety of sensor modules placed throughout a farm at strategic locations provide farm management with real-time measurements and statuses which together offer the best overall picture of the air, soil or water environment quality.
More importantly, real-time measurements and historical records and illustrative charts about a farm are placed at your fingertips, literally. Sensor modules report their statuses and measurements to a cloud server which hosts the database and web application. Users can access the latest information from every sensor by logging into the web application remotely from anywhere in the world.
When the environmental conditions fall outside set parameters, the control system brings them back into ideal levels by controlling external actuators that dispenses fertiliser, start the irrigation, open or shut roof panels, and so forth. Farm management can observe these actions or intervene in their operations.
