Ericsson, Intel and More Bring the Internet of Things to Winemakers

TracovinoMyOmega System Technologies has collaborated with Ericsson, Intel and Telenor Connexion to create an Internet of Things connectivity system to aid wine production.

Known as TracoVino, the system will enable winemakers to collect data on air and soil humidity and temperature, as well as solar intensity, through sensors and Intel-based gateways connected to a cloud service.

This data can then be used for predictive analysis and to support resource management and real-time remote monitoring, leading to higher quality  production, lower costs and reduced environmental impact for winemakers.

“Quality tools for the winemakers that are reducing their risks and improving the yield is our key offering,” said MyOmega CEO Bernd Möller. “We are building with the TracoVino services and solution a first scalable IoT offering that combines sensors, IoT gateways and a secure and powerful communication solution. Thanks to Telenors DCP and the Ericsson network technology we can scale towards the entire wine market. We base our gateways on technology provided through Intel.”

A field trial of the system has already begun with four winemakers in Germanys Mosel Valley.
