The weighing shuttle gives the user the possibility to regularly weigh the plant containers in order to see if and how much water has been added to the container. With this information, the water evaporation rate can also be determined. In this way you will be able to further standardise the water giving process based op already known patterns, whilst having control of the watering process and feedback directly from the crop. All the data collected by the shuttle is then centralised in a special module of Dat-A-Control-V3, and can be coupled with the plant-registration data.
Other possible options for our shuttles are:
- Crop inspection by use a camera.
- water feeding to individual containers.
- Barcode scanner so that the shuttle can determine the exact position of containers.
