Project Overview

The WaterBee Smart Irrigation Demonstration Action is the follow-on phase from the very successful FP7-SME-007-1 WaterBee “Research for SMEs” project (222440) that ended in September 2010, and very convincingly researched, developed & proved the concept of the WaterBee Prototype to provide an unique scientific soil-moisture model that automatically adapts to each installation & crop with a distributed Web-based Wireless Sensor Networked (WSN) Smart Irrigation system to opt...

The WaterBee Smart Irrigation Demonstration Action is the follow-on phase from the very successful FP7-SME-007-1 WaterBee “Research for SMEs” project (222440) that ended in September 2010, and very convincingly researched, developed & proved the concept of the WaterBee Prototype to provide an unique scientific soil-moisture model that automatically adapts to each installation & crop with a distributed Web-based Wireless Sensor Networked (WSN) Smart Irrigation system to optimise Water Use Efficiency (WUE) in irrigation. There is a pressing need and excellent commercial opportunity for such a system in Agriculture, which is the largest industry in the world and (according to the WWF), wastes 60% of the 2,500 trillion litres of water it uses each year – which is 70% of the world’s accessible freshwater – a huge threat to the environment. A major culprit is inefficient water irrigation systems. The project has characterised and quantified the market, and identified potential users of a commercial WaterBee service. Based on these and ongoing feedback from the demonstration sites, the project is disseminating the WaterBee service to potential customers and business partners through various media and two specific events, and has developed and is validating a Business Plan for the SMEs to commercially develop and exploit the service after this Demo Action ends.
