DycodeX and The Indonesian Government Talked About LPWA Regulations

By | News | No Comments

IoT technology development in Indonesia still runs – perhaps in a slow pace, but surely catching up fast. Along with the proliferation of technology companies that are starting to focus on IoT, the Indonesian government must start providing adequate infrastructure, and adjust the existing regulations to support the acceleration of this technology.

For this reason the Indonesian government began to prepare various things to create a conducive environment for the IoT development. The Ministry of Communication and Informatics (Kominfo) invited various telecommunication companies and startups engaged in the IT field to jointly explore network regulations for IoT.

DycodeX, along with Elnusa, represented the IoT industry in the preparation meeting for second trial of LPWA (Low Power Wide Area) network regulation in Indonesia. This meeting was initiated by the Ministry of Communication and Informatics (Kominfo). It was held in Divisi Digital Service Telkom, Bandung Digital Valley, Bandung, on October 1-2, 2018.

The topic we discussed was the scenario of LPWA rules testing, to find out the potential for interference with cellular waves. Some of the other things discussed include frequency that will be used, duty cycle, power, and other specs. If the field trial does not prove to be interference, the rules can be passed. If there is still interference, the spec is changed until interference does not occur again. the second trial will be held in the third week of October until the third week of November 2018.

The meeting was a good news for all local IoT players as this is one step closer in finally legalizing regulation for a safer, more controlled environment for IoT in Indonesia, so that it can be used and commercialized under the protection of the law. As one of the leading players in the IoT industry, we’d like to extend our utmost gratitude for the government of Indonesia for the continuous support in the local IoT industry.

SMARTernak Conducts Fourth Field Trial to Improve AI by Collecting Cattle Behavioral Pattern

By | Livestock Farming, Solutions | No Comments

Subang, West Java — SMARTernak by DycodeX, Indonesia’s first home-grown Precision Livestock Farming solution based on Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), conducted its fourth in-field trial in a cattle farm in Subang, West Java on Wednesday, 12 September 2018. This will be the second time SMARTernak trials in Subang, previously having visited the city in May 2018.

SMARTernak Field Trial at Subang

“We’re happy to be introducing SMARTernak to more cattle farmers in the West Java area,” DycodeX CEO Andri Yadi remarks. “We hope to bring SMARTernak’s IoT and AI technologies to improve cattle farming in more farms throughout Indonesia.”

DycodeX team with Mr. Andi, local cattle farmer

This field testing commenced by SMARTernak, after we previously conducted trials in Subang and Padang Mengatas, receving positive feedbacks from the local cattle farmers. The field testing’s objectives are twofold: to collect behavioral patterns from cattle to improve Artificial Intelligence and to introduce SMARTernak to more cattle farmers.

In-field trials allows SMARTernak’s AI to collect behavioral patterns from real cattle farms. Collecting behavioral patterns is an important step to effectively “teach” real-life knowledge into SMARTernak’s Artificial Intelligence (AI). One of these data is cattle movement that will ultimately be used by the AI to predict future cattle movement and activities. Cattle farmers can then use this data to effectively manage cattle and prevent unwanted occurrences from happening.

SMARTernak field testing is also to get real feedback straight from the people who know it best: Indonesian cattle farmers. Receiving feedbacks from actual cattle farmers is an essential step for us in the improvement of SMARTernak so it can be optimized further.

“Having a device that reads live data from cattle saves us from having to periodically report directly to the farm owner, which is usually difficult because he is not always around,” says Mr. Andi, a local cattle herder.

With the web dashboard, cattle-farmers can see which cattle are productive and which need special care or attention. All of this data is transmitted in real-time upon movement and physical changes in cattle. Upon closer look, you may see in-depth data about the cattle displayed in the dashboard. These data are explained as follows.

Main Dashboard Page

The main page of the SMARTernak dashboard shows information about cattle well-being.

The main dashboard functions as the primary hub for insights and recommendations so cattle farmers can act accordingly and maintain cattle productivity. The main dashboard displays events as they happen to the cattle and updates them in real time. The to-do list tab allows cattle-farmers to manually add tasks, or allow the SMARTernak AI to automatically suggest recommended actions.

The data displayed within the main dashboard is displayed as follows:

  • In Heat: Shows the number of cattle in estrus, e.g. receptive period in the sexual cycle.
  • Calving: Shows the number of cattle nearing the time to give birth to a calf.
  • Weight Gain: Shows the number of cattle which weight is increasing.
  • Active: Shows the number of cattle which engages in physical activities, e.g. moving around
  • Sick: Shows the number of cattle that catches a disease.
  • Lame: Shows the number of cattle that are idle in a certain period of time.
  • Unseen: Shows the number of cattle which has not send an update in a certain period of time.
  • Watch List: Shows the number of cattle marked for special attention

Tracking Page

SMARTernak Tracking Page shows cattle location and notifies users upon going out of bounds.

The Tracking Page displays a map with the cattle farm’s coordinate as its center. The cattle farm is restricted within the area in purple; while the pen is in blue. These restrictions are designated with virtual fencing which automatically detects cattle that stray out of bounds, and trigger an alert so cattle farmers can act accordingly.

Cattle Detail Page

See detailed information about each SMARTernak-installed cattle as well as details about power consumption.

The Cattle Detail Page shows readings of scales related to cattle well-being and productivity, as well as battery status, such as capacity and voltage.
