What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

farmAR app brings information about soil and crops directly to the smartphone. 

  • Instantly register your farm and start the service
  • Instantly land analysis on your smartphone
  • Automatically updated results when the satellite flies over again (~ every 5 days)

iOS version is on the Apple store. However the Android version needs your support to be built.

The power of farmAR comes from its satellite image processing servers. The satellite data of the registered farmare automatically processed and important results are sent to the app users. Farmers can thus be aware of all the relevant information in the field that is normally invisible to the human eye. 

This leads to quick and efficient decision-making to save crops and to get more yield. On site, farmers can directly decide about the next work steps and save time and money by reducing unnecessary chemical usage. farmAR creates positive impact on budget of farmers. 

As a further positive side effect, plants become healthier and the soil becomes richer. After signing in, the user needs to create a farm by selecting a polygon region on the map. farmAR automatically processes satellite data of the selected area. The water index (NDWI) shows which areas of the soil are wet and which areas are dry. This information helps to save crops and save water costs if it is not necessary to water. 

The vegetation index (NDVI) shows which areas are growing densely green and which areas are not. The less green areas in the map are the locations which need nutrition or fertilizers. Instead of spraying these chemicals to all farm (which is extremely expensive solution), farmers can treat the areas which need treatment. Reducing amount of chemicals with this precision farming opportunity, reduces the farming costs effectively.

farmAR shows 2D NDWI and NDVI maps, but also creates location based augmented reality (AR) tags at locations which show sudden change of water or vegetation index value. Farmer can walk to those sudden change locations to make visual inspection. Augmented reality display of farmAR guides the farmer towards these sudden change locations. Farmers benefit from satellite images very easily, without needing to be an expert.  

Furthermore, farmers can make photos and leave those photos as AR notes in the land. Later, when they visit the farm again, they can look at their past AR photos and visually compare the AR past photos with the current situation. AR photo notes can also be used for exchanging information between workers of the same farm.    

farmAR app is a groundbreaking technology with an advanced satellite data processing and artificial intelligent back-end to support the augmented reality smartphone application.   

farmAR app is created and owned by create4D  

Please contact Beril at beril@create4D.com for your questions.

Risks and challenges

If the support cannot be reached to the required amount, it is not possible to deliver the Android version of the farmAR app by January 2019. Then, the delivery date becomes unknown. Therefore, please share this announcement to reach to more supporters, so the Android app can be developed and release very quickly.

    1 year full functionalities of farmAR

    Get subscription for the full functionality usage of the farmAR app for 1 year.

    Full functionalities of the farmAR app enable you to see satellite based augmented reality in the field such as points which have less vegetation density, which need water or which require fertilizer. (Without full functionality, irrigation need will not be visible.)

    The app also enables you to create unlimited numbers of self generated augmented reality TAGs, which are photos and notes added by you into the augmented reality environment. (Without full functionality, self generated augmented reality TAG number is limited to 10 photos. )
