Partnering opportunity

Smart system for green areas maintenance

Summary

An innovative start up based in Milan developed a new smart system able to collect and process all the environmental data necessary for monitoring the maintenance of green areas both in public/private gardens and in football fields. The company is looking for foreign companies in charge of green maintenance services interested in commercial agreement with technical assistance. Company owners have 30 years’ experience in the field and are able to adapt the system upon specific requests.

Partner sought

The company is looking for foreign companies active in the sector of green maintenance, both in public and private areas. A commercial agreement with technical assistance is envisaged. Thanks to a a sound experience in the sector, company staff can provide technical assistance and adapt the system to specific requests.

Description

The maintenance of green areas, in the case of public/private gardens and in the sport sector as well, is often managed mostly according to the individual experience of operators in charge and not to predictive analysis of microclimatic and environmental dynamics. The state of vegetation, in general, is strictly dependent on microclimate, pedological and light conditions. Most of green operators do not have an adequate educational background. As a consequence in many case a human error can have a dramatic impact on a green area. An innovative start up based in Milan developed a technology solution to face this problem. The proposed smart system is based on a three-dimensional map of wireless sensors with Lorawan transmission placed in sport fields and green areas under maintenance. The sensors transmit in real time and at predetermined intervals the data received from the environment (air and ground) to a system on a cloud processing them thanks to proprietary algorithms. The data are transferred to a mobile device ( smartphone or PC) and displayed on a graphic dashboard . Finally, the information is processed according to predictive criteria and agronomic procedures in order to provide advice on tailored maintenance management . This way the qualitative yield of the turf and of the green is increased, general costs are reduced, human work is more efficient, the use of chemicals is reduced thus lowering the impact on the environment. A basic principle of Machine Learning is applied: while the single operator cannot analyse large amounts of data, a digital system can put together detections of sensors, multispectral images, drone shots, weather information, historical series and provide a model of Digital Ecosystem. The company is looking for for foreign companies in charge for green maintenance services interested in commercial agreement with technical assistance. The company can provide technical assistance and adapt the system to specific conditions upon request .

Advantages and innovations

The system allows to have a continuous targeted control on the monitored area and to support the decisional process thanks to a predictivity concept. As a result fatal errors are avoided, costs are optimized and the maintenance performances are improved.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly.
