WIDHOC is a Spin-off of the Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena (UPCT) in the field of Information and Communication Technologies. The company headquarters are located in Parque Tecnologico de Fuente Álamo (Murcia, Spain).

 

Our main line of business is dedicated to the development of intelligent systems to support irrigation. The goal is to provide the farmer more information about the soil conditions of crop, the quality of irrigation water and the water status of the plant. The aim is the optimization of the resources: savings water, saving energy and obtaining higher quality and an increasing  the production.

How do we gather the information from your crop to optimize the resources?

We use a self-developed system. It is a wireless system so it does not disturb with farming. The device is completely autonomous and is equipped with solar panels. The  price of the device is lower than other traditional wired systems and dataloggers. It is compatible with almost all the commercial sensor for agriculture use. The information of the crops is available to the user through Internet.

WIDHOC also provides scientific advice.

In addition, the company has experience in wireless technologies in other fields such as oceanography and environment. WIDHOC is in continuous development to suit market needs.
