PAMI and WESTEST are in the initial phase of developing a mobile sensor that can wirelessly transmit real-time data from the grain bin to a mobile phone. The sensor, small enough to fit in the palm of a hand, will be able to measure relative humidity, temperature and air motion and calculate moisture content throughout the bin to provide farmers with a unique solution for monitoring spoilage. Its small size and shape will allow the sensor to be fed into bins through grain conveying equipment to monitor grain health and measure temperature at a large number of random locations within the bin.
