SMARTernak Tracker and Health & Productivity Is Here to Revolutionize Indonesia’s Cattle Farming Industry

By | Press Release | No Comments

SMARTernak two variants: SMARTernak Tracking & SMARTernak Health & Productivity

Indonesia is having a dire problem in terms of beef production: the local beef production is less than 60% out of the needs. This is in juxtaposition with Indonesia’s relatively high position in FAO’s World Cattle Inventory ranking, with more than 16,5 million cattle that produces more than 500 tons of beef a year.

Despite this, the government of Indonesia maintains an optimistic outlook. President Joko Widodo is aiming for Indonesia to be self-sufficient in beef in the next nine to 10 years, saying that all preparations needed to achieve that are “on the right track”. The government pushes for an increase in cattle population.
With the increase of the number of cattle, a problem then arises: how does a cattle farmer manage a spike in livestock numbers with only a pair of hands? This is just one among many other problems that cattle farmers face.

And this is where technology comes into place. Specifically, a technology called PLF, or Precision Livestock Farming, a continuous, automated real-time monitoring of cattle production and reproduction, health and welfare, as well as environmental impact.

Introducing SMARTernak by DycodeX, a contribution to Indonesian government’s beef self-sufficiency programme. SMARTernak is the smartest PLF solution to revolutionize Indonesia’s cattle-farming industry. It cuts the hassle out of cattle-farmer’s lives by using an IoT-based system to make cattle-farmers’ lives easier and livestock healthier and more productive.

SMARTernak has two variants which cattle-farmers can pick according to the needs of their farms: SMARTernak Tracking and SMARTernak Health & Productivity. SMARTernak Tracking is optimized to accurately and periodically track cattle location and monitor their movement around the farm. SMARTernak Health & Productivity is optimized towards monitoring cattle health and general well-being as well as the environmental condition around the cattle.

Additional features for both SMARTernak Tracking and SMARTernak Health & Productivity include anti-theft system; covers wide range (with LoRa, 2G/3G network, or NB-IoT); cost-effective with low power consumption; compact, unobtrusive design; dashboard via web or smartphone.

SMARTernak only needs to be strapped on once, and it does all the hard work. SMARTernak periodically reads and sends data from the cattle which is then sent to the cloud for data digestion. Cattle farmers can then monitor the readings via the custom-built web and smartphone dashboards.

Ready to revolutionize your cattle-farm? We’re very happy to integrate SMARTernak to your existing cattle-farming workflow. Contact us at x@dycode.com for a demo.

SmarTernak Third Version Trial in Subang, West Java

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

One of DycodeX’s flagship product for precision farming, SmarTernak, has now entered the third trial phase. This trial process is needed to determine the compatibility of SmarTernak tools in different types of livestock. The last trial conducted by DycodeX team was on last April, in Padang Mengatas, West Sumatra. And on May 12, 2018, DycodeX team conducted the latest field trial.

This time, trial was conducted at a cattle farm in Cijambe subdistrict, Subang, West Java. The cows on this farm were of Bali Metal Cow type, which weighs approximately 350 – 800 kg. This type of cow is a challenge for the DycodeX team, because Balinese Cow are easily disturbed by the presence of new people. But once the sensor is installed properly, the cow’s activity is not disturbed.

DycodeX team successfully done the installation of LoRa Gateway with good pole material so it’s resistant to any kind of weather. The strap for the SmarTernak device was prepared in 2 types, so we could analyze the most convenient installation for the cattle. The mechanism of installing and discharging the SmarTernak device is now being upgraded to make it more practical and does not interfere with livestock activities.

This trial further enhances the stability and quality of the SmarTernak device. If your business is engaged in the livestock sector and requires a practical and comprehensive handling, you can contact us for more info.

SPEKUN, The First Bike Sharing With NB-IoT Technology in Souhteast Asia

By | Business, News | No Comments

On Wednesday, March 14 2018, the first bike sharing with NB-IoT (Narrowband Internet of Things) technology in Southeast Asia was launching in Universitas Indonesia (UI), Depok. Spekun – means yellow bike – will be distributed around UI campus. This launching event was a collaboration between Universitas Indonesia, Telkomsel as the biggest telco in Indonesia, and also Banopolis as the bike sharing creator. DycodeX has been working together with Banopolis for the past 6 months for this bike sharing project.

The concept of Bike sharing is bicycle lending service to the public within a certain time from one point of location to another location point. partnered with Telkomsel, DycodeX and Banopolis created a smartphone-based bike sharing, accompanied by the provision of a parking pole or dock based on radio frequency identification (RFID). That way, the bike can only be parked on the specific parking dock. In UI area, Spekun is available at three spots: UI station, Pondok Cina station, and UI Main Library.

How This Bike Sharing Works

Spekun has been equipped with Smartlock device embedded on the bike. This system is compatible with NB-IoT connectivity technology that enables all Spekun to communicate with the operator’s server so that the operator can track the bicycle while knowing the amount of bicycle distribution in all areas. The bike user needs to scan QR code on the front basket by using the Spekun application. The Smartlock will open automatically and the Spekun is ready to use.

Assembling The Brain And The Body

For the last six month, DycodeX team were working on the PCB design and we made three iterations before we finally made some improvements. We designed the printed circuit board (PCB) that became DyTrax, the main brain of NB-IoT Bike Sharing hardware. Instead of one board, we use two boards with DyTrax module to make the maintenance easier.

DyTrax, the brain of NB-IoT bike sharing hardware

The bikesharing board with Smartlock module

This Dytrax is the brain of NB-IoT Bike Sharing hardware. The Dytrax module’s features are: Processor, NB-IoT connectivity, motion sensor, and power management. Assembled with the Smartlock module, which is the driver that control the locking mechanism. The boards then connected with the software for backend integration. The NB-IoT technology, which is a type of Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) network technology, enables devices in Spekun to operate for years without recharging the battery.

We have been working under the radar to implement the technology in various living aspects. We are fortunate to be partnered with u-blox which provided us the materials needed to develop NB-IoT technology in Indonesia. As one of the first IoT companies in Indonesia, we are determined to enhance the development of IoT technology in the country, especially the NB-IoT. This bike sharing project became a milestone in our long journey to be IoT leader in Asia.
