Yuktix is winner of India Israel Innovation Challenge

Results of  Government of India StartupIndia innitiative   India-Isreal Innovation challenege are out.  Read more at this link. Yuktix Smart Sensing solution for post harvest i.e.  ColdSense was selected as one of the innovative and affordable solution for reducing post harvest losses.   In our previous blog, we talked about Yuktix Warehouse and Coldchain monitoring solution  . As per GOI of the harvest and post harvest losses run to tune of loss of INR 92,651 crore (> 14 Billion dollars) and most of the post harvest loss happen due to lack of monitoring infrastructure .   Yuktix is creating an affordable ICT system for 24x7 monitoring of environment conditions that together with computation models for different crops can provide actionable data to reduce waste, improve quality and resource utilization, cut losses thereby boosting the income. The affordable next generation sensing systems we are creating can impact millions of lives who are dependent on agricult

Yuktix Technologies - Blockchain Technologies - One of the first member of DataBrokerDAO.

Yuktix Technologies is working with DataBroker DAO that is using Blockchain Technologies to record and maintain usage of sensor data. The current discussions of smart cities assume an array of sensors deployed at a granular level. To do the smart things and derive the benefits of data driven decisions, we need a large number of sensors. It is heartening to see then an attempt to invent a unique ownership model for sensors deployment. There has to be a revenue model in place to power the sensor deployments. That is especially needed for use cases that today are not readily identifiable but incur a huge social cost. Air pollution is one such example. One way is to assume that municipalities and local government would do it. However what if we can create an ownership model where the society can participate and benefit as well? What if we paid people owning the sensors every time their data was used? That should encourage the people to install and own sensors. However the bigg

Digitising Indian Agriculture - ICT / IOT role in Agriculture - Part 2

ICT / IOT role in Indian Agriculture - Part 2 Some more applications W e talked about how data alone is not going to help and we need analytics on top of the data to get  actionable intelligence in our previous blog . We saw two applications of IOT / ICT , namely micro  weather station and Greenhouse monitoring. We are going to talk  more applications of IOT / ICT in agriculture. So continuing from where we left 3.  Warehouse and Cold chain monitoring The definition of a cold-chain is " A cold chain is uninterrupted series of storage, production, logistic and transport while maintaining a desired low temperature range which is  necessary to preserve and maintain the shelf life of products like agriculture produce, sea food,  frozen food, pharmaceutical products and medicine, chemicals and other products which if not  preserved using cooling will get deteriorate from their quality standards ". A large part of agriculture produce is stored  to meet fu

Digitising Indian Agriculture - ICT / IOT role in Agriculture - Part 1

 ICT / IOT role in Indian Agriculture In our past blogs, we shared information on how Yuktix is playing its role in Digitisation of Indian Agriculture institutes ( Here is the link to the blog) . We in Yuktix come across lot of enquiries about how IOT / ICT can  play a important role in India Agriculture keeping in mind the harsh economics realities ( 80% of rural house hold have marginal landholdings of 1 hectare and just 7% hold more than 2 hectare which lead to low quarterly revenue and thus low investment in technology - Source ).  I thought, it will be nice to write a blog on different applications of IOT / ICT in Agriculture and how it can make a difference. The rural-urban split of population in India is 68.84% and 31.16% and the level of urbanisation has increased from 27.81% (2001) to 31.16% (2011) which is further expected to increase in incoming years (interesting to note that the growth rate from 2001 to 2011 is less than 1991 to 2001 - Source ).  This in
