Smart farming: To borrow an example from a previous IoT article, farmers can also benefit from this technology. They can use special sensors to tell them when their crops need to be watered (and exactly how much water they need), and they can then implement a system that will provide that exact amount of water required automatically, while the farmer works on other things.
