FieldBEE – The New Precision Farming GPS Antenna
Guided by the mission to make precision farming technology available to every farmer, eFarmer has created FieldBEE – a brand new GPS antenna for precision farming. This antenna offers GPS navigation with an accuracy of 20-50 cm and 0-4 cm and comes at an affordable price. We are very grateful that our community of eFarmers are pre-ordering the new antenna and by doing so helping us finance setup costs of the first batch of FieldBEE’s.
It’s been a little over a year since we launched the eFarmer Farm GPS App. (The results were astonishing!) More than 80,000 farmers from 140 countries all over the world have downloaded it. Your positive feedback helps us understand that we are going in the right direction.
Apart from the software, precision farming also requires having a very precise antenna – the cost of which is very high on the market. Only a handful of farmers can afford expensive antennae from companies like John Deere, Trimble, Novatel and so forth. It is important to note that precision agricultural technologies play a crucial role in precision farming. Smart farmers utilise precision farming to improve the quality of their fields and to reduce material costs.
For those who dream of a precise navigation system – we are happy to announce that with FieldBEE this reality becomes accessible.
How did we create FieldBEE?
We have been developing this GPS antenna since 2014.
- We have made many static tests to understand the absolute accuracy of the new receiver.
- As well as dynamic tests to determine accuracy in the field environment. This is the most important part of the test. It was conducted together with many of our customers in several European countries: – Austria, Finland, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal and Ukraine.
- Additionally, we have built a feature in our app, that allows you to work with providers of RTK networks via the Internet and transmit RTK correction with the receiver.
In the process of creation of FieldBEE, we were guided by the following principles:
- Modularity – the antenna consists of several parts:
- FieldBEE – Rover Antenna – installed on the tractor and allows to obtain an accuracy of 20-50 cm, which is sufficient for many farmers.
- RTK BEE Station – extra antenna is installed in a field on a hill or a tripod / mast and allows for super accuracy of 0-4 cm.
- Serviceability – automatically receive updates and diagnostics remotely over a mobile network.
- The ability to use with all precision agriculture operations. To avoid the need for expensive replacement equipment in the future. This antenna can be used with autosteer, for soil sampling, for accurate measurements, and so forth.
- Easy to install and upkeep – use of the antenna does not require any special technical knowledge. Simply install the antenna on the roof of a tractor cab and connect it to the eFarmer app via Bluetooth.
- Reliability – water and dust proof, IP67 the standard, 2-year warranty.
- Affordable price
“FieldBEE is made with love and the latest space technologies”
How can I order a new antenna?
More than 2 years of development, 100 hours of testing and our antenna is finally ready for production. To establish production and purchase materials for the first batch of antennae, we need an investment.
We decided to ask our users to help us in the financing of these costs by pre-ordering the new FieldBEE antenna.
What is a pre-order?
You pay now with the large discount and receive antenna in 6 months. We will make a contract with you. You transfer the money. We deliver the antenna. If you do not get the antenna in 6 months – we will refund your money.
Why pre-order FieldBEE?
- First, you get a great product – a highly accurate navigation system for a very good price.
- Second, you will help us to finance the cost of production of the first batch, to avoid bank loans and to keep our prices low.
- Third, and most importantly, you will support eFarmer in our movement, to make precision farming technology available to every farmer in the world.
Will we be able to produce an antenna within the specified time?
We expect to produce the first batch of antennae by 1 March 2017. However, laying another 2 months for contingencies and charges. So we hope to please you with a new antenna earlier.
