Sharing agricultural machines: an industry showcase based on the ‘HAT’ Workshop

Students within the masters program ‘Applied Business Innovation’ have developed a new IoT solution for the agriculture industry based on ideas which they drafted in the Learning Lab stream ‘HAT – Home Automation with IoT‘.

To achieve the goals of the 2015 World Climate Conference, emissions must be saved across all sectors. Ms. Dörr, Ms. Egert, Ms. Laufs and Ms. Peters – all students of the master’s degree program “Applied Business Innovation” – have taken this as a basis to develop a digital and sustainable concept for agriculture. The use of digital technologies in agriculture should not only offer monetary benefits, but also enable a more sustainable way of doing business.

In the paper downloadable below, a concept for optimizing the current process of machine sharing in agriculture is set up. With the help of an IoT-based sharing platform, the process is digitalized and made more efficient. Furthermore, by focusing on the sharing of agricultural machines with alternative drives, emission reduction and the use of renewable energies are promoted on site. The student team presented their results at the Digi-Slam 5 of the Hochschule München – download the project paper (in German) here .
