The Flyseeagro company from Russia is engaged in applying useful insects (entomophages) and fertilizers in agricultural fields. It might sound trivial if you don't know that they do it with the help of air drones.
Entomophages are used in agriculture for pest control. Before landing the "troops” on the field, insect eggs and pupae must be purchased from the manufacturer, delivered to the storage location, and then to the drone’s departure point.
Geolid Service, the Wialon partner from Russia, has developed a solution that allows the client to take the freight carriage conditions of their live cargo under control.
The main challenge while implementing the project was the integrity preservation of a refrigerating chamber and manufacturer's seals. Otherwise, its breakage would void the equipment warranty. Thus, it was impossible to use a wired sensor or wire up to the refrigerator controller.
The problem was solved with the help of the Neomatica wireless temperature sensors and a GLONASSsoft telematics terminal, which was connected to the refrigerator's power supply. The connection diagram was developed considering the refrigerator and terminal manufacturers’ recommendations.
Refrigerators for transporting the entomophage eggs and nymphs
Data on refrigerator tracking parameters in Wialon
The solution offered by Geolid Service allowed the client to reduce the financial costs associated with the possible loss of cargo due to violations of the transportation conditions.
The client has continuous access to data on the state and location of mobile refrigerating chambers via the Wialon mobile app.
Flyseeagro can provide customers and suppliers with reports confirming that the required conditions for insect transportation are met. This rescues the company from expenses when the cargo is damaged because of the counterparties’ actions.
In case of a threatening temperature change in the container and other alerts, the client is notified and can quickly resolve the problem, save the cargo, and avoid financial losses.
Geolid Service provided an excellent solution to us. We had recurring cases of refrigerators’ power shutdown during transportation or fieldwork. There was no remote monitoring capability. We received claims from counterparties several times due to incorrect transportation of entomophagous batches, and we could not prove the opposite. The Geolid Service team not only found a solution but also did it in the shortest possible time – less than two weeks. We express our gratitude to the project team.
