agro.Connectrlp Creates a Network for the Agricultural Domain

20.02.2008
At this year's CeBIT, Fraunhofer IESE and the University of Applied Sciences Bingen will jointly present state-of-the-art developments for simplifying business workflows in agriculture.

The solution presented enables a farmer to create contract documents and transmit them to service providers and contract partners using the Internet. agro.Connectrlp will be presented in the Public Sector Parc in hall 9, booth C39/02 at the joint booth of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate.

Using agro.Connect rlp, it will be possible to include geographical data (aerial photographs, location and boundaries of cultivated areas) into agricultural documentation, administration, and business workflows, and exchange them. The crucial issue is the flexible usage of data that has been recorded once, and the avoidance of unnecessary multiple entries. To achieve this goal, the new technology dynamically combines geodata from the state government with user data from farm administration programs.

The architecture is based on the principle of data sovereignty: Farm data worth protecting remain under the farmer's control - a crucial prerequisite for the acceptance of this technology throughout the domain. agro.Connectrlp is being built on the basis of open standards (including XForms, ebXML, UBL, OGC, agroXML) and a service-oriented architecture (SOA); a prototype is being developed and a pilot project is taking place. First practical experiences have already been made; several software developing companies have already expressed their interest in agro.Connect rlp.

The project agro.Connect rlp is being carried out by Fraunhofer IESE and the Competence Center for Innovative Information Systems of the University of Applied Sciences Bingen together with the Service Center Rural Region Rheinhessen-Nahe-Hunsrück. It is funded by the Ministry for Economic Affairs, Transportation, Agriculture and Viniculture of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate. Other states will also be able to benefit from the developments initiated by the state of Rhineland-Palatinate.

Fraunhofer-Institute for Experimental Software Engineering
Fraunhofer IESE is one of the worldwide leading research institutes in the area of software and systems development. A major portion of the products offered by our collaboration partners is defined by software. These products range from automotive and transportation systems to telecommunication and telematics equipment, from information systems and medical devices to software systems for the public sector. Our solutions allow flexible scaling. This makes us a competent technology partner for organizations of any size - from small companies to major corporations.

Under the leadership of Prof. Dieter Rombach and Prof. Peter Liggesmeyer, the past decade has seen us making major contributions to strengthening the emerging IT location Kaiserslautern.

In the Fraunhofer Information and Communication Technology Group, we are cooperating with other Fraunhofer institutes on developing trend-setting key technologies for the future.

Fraunhofer IESE is one of 56 institutes of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Together we have a major impact on shaping applied research in Europe and contribute to Germany's competitiveness in international markets. The institute is officially a "Selected Landmark 2008" of the German-wide initiative "Germany - Land of Ideas".

Im Focus: Powerful IT security for the car of the future – research alliance develops new approaches

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
