If animals could talk... Or do they? | Technological Sparks | Scoop.it
From ultrasonic bat chirps to eerie whale songs, the animal kingdom is a noisy place. While some sounds might have meaning - typically something like "I'm a male, aren't I great?" - no other creatures have a true language except for us.

Excerpt:

This technology would use a host of sensors to provide real time information on soil moisture, weather conditions, and other important field conditions. Other systems can track fertilizer usage and automate water pumps and other hardware plus special sensing technology can measure and track plant transpiration and stress.

GPS tracking solutions offered by Magenheim make it possible to monitor equipment and crews and make sure that valuable machinery can be tracked if stolen.
