Institute of Mathematics and Computer Science (IMCS) of the University of Latvia is implementing the project ''Development of Long Range Wireless sensor network for precision farming applications in Latvia'' (The Project). The Project has two main directions of research. The first is development of new long range Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) nodes providing radio link in a long distances (more than 300m), the second is development of energy efficient operating system (FarmOS) for large scale WSNs with main focus on robust easy to use agricultural applications. Development of current WSN nodes is based on Texas Instrument's hardware and AgroSeNET technology drafted by Cominfo Inc. FarmOS is being developed in cooperation with Institute of Electronics and Computer Science. In framework of the Project IMCS is implementing field trial of large scale Long Range WSN technology for automated radiation frost protection of cranberry fields. FarmOS supports mash topology of WSN. For small networks star and multihop topologies could be used. The main goal of the Project is to build WSN prototype with newly designed 50 long range nodes running FarmOS to provide automated cranberry field protection with intelligent radiation frost prediction and decision making features. Depending on data gathered in the real time the intelligence of the system will provide immediate decision whether fog generator, water spryer system or just wind blowers would be chosen. Farmer's end
user client software will deliver Software as a Service concept.
