Case Study: IoT industry applied to the production of Peruvian native potatoes

  1. 1. Case Study: IoT industry applied to the production of Peruvian native potatoes Wilmer Azurza Neyra, Telecom Engineer, MTC - Peru Internet of Things course - Final Project, November 2016
  2. 2. • Industry Peruvian potatoes • Potato production (tons) • Analysis of applying IoT • IoT solution & benefits • Technologies • Business models • Operational issues & policy topics Outline
  3. 3. 3 Industry Peruvian potatoes Peru's native potatoes are grown in all regions of the mountains above 3,000 AMSL Peru exported 4.7 million tons of potatoes per year 30,000 peruvians families depend native potato more than 50% of their crop is lost due to pests and other diseases. 92% of all potatoes grown in Peru are consumed in the country, while only 8% are exported, mostly as frozen, pre-cooked dishes. Export 8% Consumed 92% Industry potatoes Source: INEI, 2014
  4. 4. 4 Potato production (tons) Source: FAO, 2014
  5. 5. 5 Analysis of applying IoT IoT solution & benefits Technologies Risks & Policies Business models • How are we solving the consumer’s problema? • What benefits are we generating? • how do we make money? up front? performance-based? monthly fee? • what are the most important cost? • What technologie are we using to solve their problem? • What are the main risks associated with the product/service? • What regulations and policies may effect the commercialisations of our product/service
  6. 6. 6 IoT solution & benefits • Implement sensors and actuators for the industrialization of plantations and crops. • Measurement and data acquisition (temperature, humidity, movement) in real time the growth of potatoes. • Installation of actuators for opening faucets, shot insecticide, other automated and controlled online. IoT solution • Increased production and better prices for economies of scale. • Higher quality and consistency in production. • Increased revenue producer. Benefits
  7. 7. 7 Technologies Feature Requirement Comment Network area • Wide Sensors and actuators will send data of temperature, humidity, movement, among others, to distances of hectares inclusive, so the network area should be wide. Spectrum • Shared The sensors and actuators can use unlicensed bands (eg 2.4 GHz or 5.8 GHz) to minimize licensing costs. Battery life • Long Sensors and actuators must be powered with long battery life, since it must not be manipulated crops for battery replacement or recharging, the risk of damage production. Connectivity cost • Low low by the use of unlicensed bands, only management fees are made. Module cost • Medium OPEX: low cost but CAPEX: significant cost Bandwith • Low Generated by sensors and transmitted to the actuators, minimum consumption data. Technologies: WiFi LPWAN LRWAN
  8. 8. 8 Business models Business models Revenue of the IoT company Device ownership Comments Performance-as- product Usage User The IoT devices owned by the user, and the company cora IoT for the information transmitted. Product-as-a- service Recurring IoT Company The user can pay the company IoT O & M of the IoT solution. Cost-savings sharing Recurring IoT Company The devices are owned by the company IoT, and the user will pay a ercentage savings by production costs.
  9. 9. 9 Operational issues & policy topics • Possible interference by using an unlicensed. • extensive network coverage to avoid loss of communication between the sensors and actuators. • Reliability and availability of IoT devices. • Loss or theft of information. Policy areasOperational considerations • The government should establish protocols to prevent interference and other IoT coexistences networks. • The company IoT must garatizar management and connectivity IoT devices. • The government should establish cybersecurity policies for IoT devices.
