Our classification of digital tools and services
For the time being, the tools on the platform are mainly focused on the agricultural production - plant and animal - outside the cities. We have focused for the moment on agricultural production and not on food innovations
For this first version, we have deliberately left out the downstream production tools (transport, distribution, logistics, sales, short circuits and marketing channels...). Nevertheless, the Do not hesitate to enter your digital tool or service on the platform. Even if it is not introduced immediately, new categories may be created in the near future on the platform.
As for the classification we propose, it is certainly open to criticism but it has enabled us to organise a relatively coherent breakdown of the digital tools and services on the market. Click on each of these categories to get a little more information!
Our filters on digital tools
In the tool shop, a number of filters have been set up to help you search the directory.
On the left-hand side of the shop, you will find more business filters directly related to the field. On the right-hand side of the shop, you will find more technological" filters.
Below you will find some additional information on how to use these filters in the best way!
The "business" filters :
For which element(s) of your farm would you like to look for a digital tool?
You may be interested in buildings, insects/pests, your plants, your animals, or the organisation of your farm...
For which crops Are you looking for a digital tool?
Winter wheat, Flax, Oats, Alfalfa...
For which agricultural sector Are you looking for a digital tool?
Arable crops, Arboriculture, Dairy cattle, Goats...
What mode of purchase do you prefer?
A direct purchase of the tool? A subscription? Renting?
For what mode of action of your cultural interventions/applications Would you like to search for a digital tool?
Could it be for chemical, mechanical, biocontrol or UV treatment applications?
What is your main objective on the farm?
- Change of practices Digital tools to support you in the transitions and changes in practices that you can achieve on your farm
- Comfort and time saving Digital tools to save you time and comfort in your daily work on the farm
- GHG Emissions and Carbon Storage Digital tools to help you monitor greenhouse gas emissions or carbon storage in the soil or in plants on your farm
- Energy Digital tools to save your energy use or to support you in storing energy
- Agronomic and technical management Digital tools to support you in the technical operations of your farm
- Labelling and specifications Digital tools to support you in the labelling of your products or operations, or the monitoring of the specifications of a label
- Input reduction Digital tools to help you reduce inputs (fertilisation, spraying, etc.) on your farm
- Regulatory and traceability Digital tools to assist you in your regulatory procedures and to ensure traceability of products and/or interventions on your farm
- Agronomic stability Digital tools to help you manage your farm's finances
What is thecultural route or thecultural intervention for which you are looking for a digital tool?
Sampling, Harvesting, Irrigation...
In which country was the digital tool developed?
However, this does not mean that the digital tool is not available in another country
What agricultural production are you interested in?
Vegetable ? Animal? Both?
To what user type is dedicated to the digital tool?
This can be for the farmer but also for all the structures around him: advisor, technician, CUMA...
It is a finer typology of sensors used to collect data This will include, for example:
- weather sensors
- multispectral cameras
- hyperspectral cameras
The more general typology of sensors is in the "Vector" filter
Does the digital tool have an API to connect to it (retrieve data, interact with another digital tool...)?
What is the interface type that enables the use of digital tools?
Does the tool simply provide data? Can it be used via a smartphone application? Or via a website? ...
Here we find the categories of digital tools. The classification is described just above the filters!
These are the main types of sensors to acquire data:
- fixed sensor,
- external on-board sensor (on a machine, or an animal)
- internal on-board sensor (inside an animal for example)
- Aerial (for a sensor on a satellite or a drone for example)
You will find more detailed typologies in the "Data acquisition" filter
It is the ability of the robot to act alone:
- Autonomous Operator not required except in case of unforeseen circumstances. Power on/off is automatic or remote controllable
- Cobot The robot is intended to be used with humans in order to collaborate with them
- Semi-autonomous An operator is required for start-up and monitoring
- Remote controlled The robot needs to be guided from a distance
This is the level of development of the robot. It may be under development, in testing, or available for sale.
These are the technologies that the robot uses to find its way around:
- Random with obstacle detection : The robot moves randomly and avoids obstacles - either with mechanical sensors - or with an ultrasonic sensor
- Camera The robot uses a camera and image analysis to locate itself and/or to determine the position of its target
- Radar / Lidar / Ultrasound The robot emits waves that allow it to map its surroundings to locate itself and determine its trajectory
- Rails / Wires / RFID chips The robot uses an existing guidance system. It can only follow predefined paths or must be controlled remotely
- RTK The robot locates itself with centimetre-accurate GPS
Some of these technologies are used at the same time on the same robot
It is the energy source that powers the robot
