Other Features

Pulsepod connects using cellular, WiFi and Bluetooth. It also has multiple mounting options for camera, and more. It is a one-of-its-kind machine in the entire agriculture sector with multiple observational streams and the ability to send data to cloud for real-time analysis by experts.

The Road Ahead

Now Arable has raised $1.5 million in angel funding. According to Adam Wolf, Arable will now be working on further developing Pulse-pod for use beyond agriculture. Possible future applications include city flood-management and planning, and water quality management.
