TITLE: Nanobios Lab IIT Bombay and ZP - Agriculture Webinar



WHEN: 2:30 PM India 02 November 2021.



ABSTRACT: Agriculture sensors changed the life of farmers and the economy. Data provided by these sensors assist farmers in monitoring and optimizing crops by adapting to changes in environmental conditions. They help us meet the increasing demand for food by maximizing yields with minimum resources such as water, fertilizers and seeds by conserving resources and mapping fields. Real-time sensing of crops has become essential for sound production. A crop like grape requires monitoring all the time for a healthy crop.

NanoBios Lab of IIT Bombay works on Diagnostic devices, IoT Sensors and nanotechnology to cure cancer and other diseases. It focuses on translational research. Innovative technologies/products have been developed in this lab. In the past, it has provided several sensors which are currently in the market and improving the lives of millions of people.

Zimmer and Peacock is a leading company that provides these sensors to meet the requirements of new and growing markets. It offers a range of products and services, including sensors, the necessary hardware, and customer-specific Android and iOS applications, IP generation and scalable manufacturing.

This webinar will give you information on how NanoBios and ZP collaborate to provide new and innovative Agriculture sensors.
