Ford F-150 Enables Farmers with Mobile Ag Datacenter + Azure Stack Edge
2021 Ford F-150 Pro Power onboard generator + a Trailer + Azure Stack Edge + a Honda Pioneer 500 ATV + equipped with Green Atlas Cartographer + SoilOptix Digital Top Soil Mapping System + Smart Guided Systems Permanent Crop Analyzer = "Mobile Ag Datacenter"
The truck not only acts as a means for transporting equipment to grower locations but it allows us to complete the process of bringing on-farm solutions to growers. The 2021 Ford F-150 3.5L Powerboost™ V6 hybrid engine comes with a class exclusive ProPower Onboard that allows innov8.ag to use our truck as a mobile generator to power data processing units in remote locations, all from a smartphone.
Azure Edge computing from Microsoft then allows us to provide growers with actionable insights from the ATV-based IoT solutions by acting as a cloud storage gateway to enable large data transfers. Azure Stack Edge makes a portfolio of the devices used so that quick and actionable insights can be made directly where the data is processed.
The Honda Pioneer 500 ATV is the vehicle of choice to attach all three of our partners image processing systems. With the Green Atlas Cartographer placed on the back, the SoilOptix Digital Top Soil Mapping System horizontally placed on the front bumper, and the Smart Guided System Permanent Crop Analyzer elevated by a 90 degree brace on the front of the ATV.

Mounted ATV Systems
The Green Atlas Cartographer helps growers manage the life cycle of their crop by quickly (~30mph) counting flowers/fruit and accurately mapping them over entire orchards.
The SoilOptix Digital Top Soil Mapping System changes the game of precision agriculture by providing an affordable soil analysis system that provides high definition soil maps so growers can better understand their crop.
The Smart Guided Systems Permanent Crop Analyzer allows growers to count the number of trees, categorize trees by size, asses canopy volume per tree, provides as applied (spray maps), and estimates the percent of chemical savings.
AI-Driven Predictive Offerings
& Bloom Count
Need to predict how much fruit you'll have next harvest, or inform your employees where to thin? This package powered by GreenAtlas Cartographer allows growers to count from bloom-full maturity to estimate and optimize labor and chemical usage for thinning and harvest. This capability gives you the opportunity to estimate processing and storage capacity from post harvest all the way to harvest again.
Dashboard With Use Cases
Utilize our PowerBI dashboard that is specific to your farms' sensors. Have all of your data in one place to make informed decisions immediately while maintaining ownership of what's yours. Gain core KPI's and optimize irrigation to maximize fruit quality.
Insights With Automation
Leverage soil moisture & weather data to enable AutoWater, which brings together irrigation scheduling + pump automation. As we progress through 2021 we'll be adding data layers to our mapping tool where you can easily visualize soil, nutrient, weather, labor, chemical, & imagery data in one place.
Partnered Product Offerings
The Green Atlas Cartographer is an innovative combination of hardware and software that allows flower and fruit counts to be quickly and accurately mapped over entire orchards. With high resolution AI assisted mapping, our customers know every block and every tree, to help manage the life cycle from flower to fruit.
Know the relative performance of different blocks, comparing overall yield and the evenness of the distribution. Know how well your thinning program worked and adapt for next year.
Know the variability within each block. Determine management zones to address variability and achieve consistency every year.
Zoom in and know exactly what’s going on like Google Street View™ for the orchard. Visually inspect high resolution color images anywhere.
Go beyond 2D and know the performance of the lower and upper canopy. The trees on the right are one year older and bear more fruit up top, while the lower canopy has been managed evenly. Predict the increased harvest labor with more fruit in the upper canopy. During flowering, manage the different timing of lower and upper canopy bloom.
Cartographer uses LiDAR to measure tree canopy geometry throughout the orchard. This includes tree height, canopy area/volume and canopy density. Define treatment zones or make informed spray and pruning decisions throughout the season! Top right: apple tree volume; Bottom right: wine grape vine volume.
The Cartographer has been busy working across multiple crop types including Apples, Almonds, Cherries, Kiwifruit and Wine Grapes across the spectrum of fruit lifecycle, from flowering to mature fruit, and in the case of almonds, post-harvest to map ‘mummified’ nuts left on the trees.
Digital Top Soil Mapping System
SoilOptix® – High Resolution Top Soil Mapping is inspired to bring to agriculture a new one-of-a-kind, affordable soil analysis system that sets a new standard for accuracy in precision agriculture. Offering much more than traditional soil measurement practices, SoilOptix® delivers the highest definition and most detailed field nutrient maps obtainable today. This empowers growers to make the best decisions for management and soil stewardship. SoilOptix® is your best choice, because every square foot is unique.
How It Works
SoilOptix® uses a non-contact, pre-calibrated sensor, mounted on a collection vehicle approximately 2ft (60cm) above the ground, traveling up to 12 mph (20kph) in 40 ft (12m) swaths widths. The sensor is measuring natural geological properties
Traditional soil samples are taken at strategically place locations; 1 every 8 acres surveyed. These are then sent out to your local lab for analysis. These results are integrated into our final product. Once we receive the lab results, we can begin our processing.
Our highly-trained team of data processors then take, analyze, and process the information using proprietary SoilOptix® software and algorithms. Data processing is completed within a target of 48 business hours.
High-definition nutrient & texture maps are returned to you in generic SHP or CSV files. Files are VRA-ready and can be easily integrated into most data platforms; including Climate FieldView & John Deere Operations Centre.
