Ehime has selected UMITRON for a project to integrate its buoys into PULSE, a cutting-edge satellite monitoring tool that adapts to production-focused environmental parameters.
Ehime is one of the leading primary production regions in Japan. As part of the Try Angle Ehime, the Digital Deployment Acceleration Project for the fiscal year 2022 in Ehime Prefecture, UMITRON has been given the green light to tackle this challenge.
Therefore, the government has deployed several buoys in the surrounding areas to monitor conditions and provide farmers with critical data. However, disseminating this information is a significant challenge, so the expertise of a company like UMITRON, the creator of PULSE, was needed for this task.
PULSE is an advanced satellite monitoring tool that aggregates data from over 30 satellites and open-source data for crucial ocean parameters such as dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll, salinity, wave height, and water temperature. This tool allows users to view up to two years of historical data and forecast up to 48 hours of data for their site.
UMITRON engineers integrated buoys into the PULSE platform, enabling free access to comprehensive data from multiple sources, including local buoys, for Ehime farmers. This integrated data information enables farmers to make better-informed decisions on feeding, treatment, and asset protection in adverse weather. Ultimately, it will allow them to achieve more with less.
“UMITRON PULSE now can integrate various ocean environment data and provides one-stop
access to ocean environmental data, which typically are stored and hosted at multiple websites
and less accessible for farmers for daily uses,” said Ken Fujiwara, UMITRON’s co-founder and
CEO. “We plan to add more local data by collaborating with local governments and public
