Smart Food Security System Using IoT and Big Data Analytics

Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC,volume 800)


The agriculture sector is facing major challenges to enhance production in a situation of dwindling natural resources. The growing demand for agricultural products, however, also offers opportunities for producers to sustain, improve productivity and reduce waste in the supply chain. Recent advancements in information and communication technologies (ICT) show promise in addressing these challenges. This paper proposes food security architecture for agricultural supply chain efficiency using ICT tools such as Internet of Things and Big Data analytics. To avoid loss in agriculture, a food security architecture is developed through Smart Agribusiness Supply Chain Management System is developed in this paper. This can result in uplifting the livelihoods of the rural poor through the enhancement of agribusiness.
