CB IoT Technologies Pvt Ltd (CBTech) is an Agritech startup developing products and solutions in Agriculture, Agroforestry and Tree Lifecycle Management We are IoT Company leveraging AI and Black chain technologies; our products are targeted toward monitor and protect high value tree species. Our “Tree Life Cycle Management” solution will monitor and provide insights of various parameters of tree species from plantation, harvesting to end of life .
“Microchip based IoT solution is to monitor trees remotely using web interface and mobile app. Each unauthorized attempt on tree (like tree cut, theft) will result in alarm to all registered devices.
Below are main components in this product
Set of Sensor tags forms Wireless sensor network (WSN) with Gateway Device. Gateway and Sensors will communicate with RF. Each Gateway can handle approximately 100 sensor tags with in the 1 KM radius.
Trees are tagged with sensors embedded in the trees in a camouflage enclosure (customer to suggest ideal place for mounting the sensors on tree and possible ways to secure it from un-mounting from unauthorized people) that communicate with a gateway over air interface (RF) sending alerts and notifications
Sensor (Tag): Sensor is designed based on microcontroller with accelerometer and customized algorithms are designed to detect various parameters from the assets, here sensor will detect vibration and tilt and communicate with Gateway. Sensor also send daily health message to Gateway. Sensor works on 3V Lithium coin battery, which is expected to last for more than one year.
Gateway collect the information (Tree cut/Tilt alerts, daily attendance, etc..) from the Sensors and relay and/or Store and Forward information to the Server.
CBTech IIoT gateway supports many interfaces like USB, Ethernet, USB OTG and Serial etc. It has inbuilt Wi-Fi module and proprietary RF module. It has onboard memory storage device and also support external memory card.
Server is built with state-of –the-art technologies which can be hosted either in the cloud or standalone. Server software has capability to handle more than one million trees. Server will configure and monitor the WSN and collect the information from the Gateways and processes for the users.

Mobile applications for monitoring the trees for users (admins) are built on Android technology. Mobile App can be downloaded from Google Play store. Mobile Application is also having similar GUI interface as Server Web interface.
Tree asset tracking can also achieved with semi-automated Low cost solution for Low value and Low risk tree species with RFID technology, where solution cost reduced to 50 to 10 times In this solution architecture, Server software and mobile applications are remains same, however “Real time microchip based sensors” are replaced with “RFID tags” and “IoT Gateway” will be replaced with “Handheld RFID Reader”.
