This is an interesting article - but it seems to imply that high technology agriculture with water sensors has yet to be developed. A clearer statement of the existing state of agricultural sensors and technology (water conditions, current temperature, soil chemistry, presence of plant pests, and crop ripeness) would help to place the proposed research in context.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
