This technology platform is a horticultural LED light based-ecosystem for smarter plant production including food crops.
As urban farming becomes nowadays more and more present in modern cities, the platform can play facilitator role to manage city productions in efficient manner. Indeed, it is designed to be easily integrated in all indoor and greenhouse producer’s systems setup (compatible with industrial protocols manly used in greenhouses).
This technology platform is automatizing tool for growing processes and data analyses, from scientific researches to production system through the use of the artificial intelligence (AI). The system can determine which method of growing is most performing according the producer’s objectives (chemical use reduction, growth control, crops taste and nutritional properties improvements).
Basically, it uses LED, sensors, cameras, embedded computers, AI, an App, blockchains and cloud platforms.
The first ecosystem optimized in a research to production approach
This platform can be use from the seed breeding process to laboratory analysis after harvest at production facilities as well as in research centers for crop improvement. By monitoring all parameters and a tracking of all the actions throughout the plant development processes, all the segments of the value chain of the plant productions can utilise this platform.
The LED technology offers the best efficiency in the lighting industry. Combining LED with deep neural network, artificial intelligence, blockchain, cameras and deep knowledge of crop production to make an integrated open eco-system brings many benefits to growers and finally to the growing population.
