Watering the world
Original story at MIT News Many farms in drought-prone regions of the U.S. rely on drip irrigation as a water-saving method to grow crops. These systems pump water through long thin tubes that stretch across farm fields. Hundreds of dime-sized drippers along the length of each tube trickle water directly onto a plant’s base. A farmer can control the timing and amount of watering, delivering only as much water as a crop requires. Drip irrigation can reduce a farm’s water consumption by as much as 60...
WIWAM line design and final installation @ VIB
WIWAM line comprises a pot positioning table, consisting of several individual lines, an underlying portal robot, and one or more stations for imaging or weighing/watering activities. The complete system was implemented in an existing growth room, and was designed to optimally fit the available space. Plants are grown in individual pots, which are picked up by the robotic arm at preset time intervals, bringing them to the imaging and weighing-watering stations. The robot pushes the lines of the table aside to...
