This IoT test bed, supported by Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, was officially launched earlier this month to demonstrate a new business model that will help accelerate advancements and innovations in agro technology. As part of this initiative, Yanmar has created an end-to-end IoT solution that delivers next-generation capabilities for Japan’s horticulture systems. mnubo’s AI-driven, purpose-built IoT insights platform, integrated with Yanmar’s other IoT partners, will deliver real-time sensor data analysis, predict crop yield and growth trends, optimize energy efficiency and forecast resource utilization.

Agriculture is a vital economic sector for Japan; the fast-aging population is resulting in a shortage of qualified human labour. Yanmar’s leadership and foresight, supported by its partnership with mnubo, will help achieve an efficient and sustainable horticulture system - that reduces total workload and optimizes energy efficiency through real-time greenhouse monitoring and predictive yield management.

“Yanmar continues to pioneer new innovations towards a sustainable future,” said Mr. Masayuki Obayashi, Manager of Industrial Internet Group, Yanmar R&D Center. “Working with mnubo’s AI-driven IoT insights solution, as part of the IoT test bed, will facilitate proactive decision-making as well as enable new learnings from the greenhouse data. This partnership combines Yanmar’s extensive industry experience with mnubo’s unique ability to create business value from sensor data, and jointly build the next-generation of horticulture systems.”

“We are thrilled to be working with Yanmar on their IoT Smart Greenhouse project,” said Frederic Bastien, CEO of mnubo. “Yanmar is using actionable insights from our solution to boost crop yields and improve overall resource efficiency, bringing forth a new wave of data-driven transformation to the Japanese agro industry.”
