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

By | Livestock Farming, News, Solutions | 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.

Update On DycodeX Movement – To Success And Beyond

By | News | No Comments

Earlier this week, we have announces several news about DycodeX movement and products. As an emerging IOT company, many steps are taken by management to improve and grow our business. One of them is to produce new qualified IOT products and market them internationally.

DycodeX also maintains good relationships with overseas manufacturing industries and IT companies, especially as many of the IOT components needed are still hard to find in Indonesia. Therefore, DycodeX CEO Andri Yadi made several business trips to several Asian countries, as he did this week in Shenzen, China.

If you have read the news about the millions of dollars funding from the largest IT company in Asia, well, it still becomes our wish to this day. But it’s never impossible to be come true in the future, isn’t it?

And of course we really hope our joke about SMARTLover product can actually be realized. At least we would be very proud to produce a technology that uncover the greatest mysteries of mankind. But well, until then, we will keep making other sophisticated products.

Stay tune for more updates in our social media and blog!

About PyCon Indonesia 2017 (#PyConID2017)

PyCon Indonesia is a conference where Python users, or people interested in Python, gather to learn from each other and meet other members of the community. By joining this conference, all attendees will not only learn new and exciting things. But also meet new friends and strengthen the connection with the community, and thus the community itself.

#PyConID2017 aired with “A New Beginning” as a main theme this year. Well-known as the first Python Conference (PyCon) in Indonesia, #PyConID2017 had been held in Semarang last week (9/12).

New Insight from an Awesome Speakers

 

#PyConID2017 was proudly invite 20 speakers included 2 keynote speakers. DycodeX as a Gold Sponsor in this event also had 1 session represented by Alwin Arrasyid, an IoT Software Engineer.

Internet of Things ranges from measuring things in the physical world to building devices, software, apps, and data analysis, hence it brings people with various expertise together. It is rare to see developer who can build software for the devices, back-end, and do analysis alone due to difference in technology that is used. That is why device software or firmware developers often use third-party IoT cloud service such as Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix and ThingSpeak to build their prototype. This talk addresses the possibility of building full stack IoT products using only Python as the main technology.

In refer to the thoughts above, Alwin’s entitle his topic with “IoT Software Engineer Journey: Connecting the Unconnected with Python”. Alwin’s presentation deck is available here.
