Hyler, a Belgian manufacturer of farming harversters (specialized in flax and hemp harvesting) participates in the EU DEMETER project. Goal of the project for Hyler was to read the sensors' data of their harvesting machines and providing the information in a readable and understandable way to customers. Hyler was assisted by ODYC who managed the project and by us. 

We were responsible for the development of the visualization tool. To this end, we read the data from the Bosch IOT Insights platform, created a query specific to fetch the required data and aggregated it on our side. Via a REST service, that data is made available to partners.

The service is registered in Demeters' Brokerage Service Environment and the Demeter Enabler Hub, making it available to third parties who'd wish to use the data. The API is documented using Swagger.

We also developed a web application to visualize the location of the harvester and some key metrics. One of those metrics was a map of the plant heights, encountered by the machine while harvesting. The data is obtained through the aformentioned service.





DEMETER’s goal is to lead the digital transformation of Europe’s agri-food sector through the rapid adoption of advanced IoT technologies, data science and smart farming, ensuring its long-term viability and sustainability. 60 partners from 18 European countries are involved in the DEMETER project.

DEMETER is a Horizon 2020 project (857202) supported by the European Union.
