Data exchange systems & services for agriculture

Provision of centralized and decentralized data exchange platforms in the agricultural industry

Our work

The object DKE-Data is the development, operation, support and promotion of data exchange systems along the entire agricultural and/or agrifood value chain.

The Agricultural Interoperability Network (AgIN) will enable the industry the opportunity to exchange data via a standardized cloud connection to provide farmers with simplified access to information about their machines.

The Agricultural Industry Electronics Foundation (AEF) and its member companies, the leading representatives of the representatives of the agricultural machinery industry, agreed on the development of a new cloud-based network.

The AEF is a global non-profit organization that has set itself the task of improving cross-manufacturer compatibility in agricultural technology.

The agrirouter is a universal data exchange platform for farmers and contractors. It enables the cross-manufacturer exchange of data between agricultural machinery, agricultural software and other applications.

The agrirouter receives the data from the agricultural machinery or agricultural software, converts it into a standardized format and then forwards it to the recipients. The recipients can then use the data in their own applications.

The agrirouter supports a variety of data types, including eg. machine data, field data and farm data.
