Pylot - Smart Analyze Software
We believe all the complex data a greenhouse generates should benefit you. Not make your life more complicated. That's why we developed PYLOT. PYLOT is a smart system that analyzes and interprets data. PYLOT then presents it in a user-friendly dashboard. It's Software As A Service that helps you grow better and harvest more. PYLOT helps you plan and adjust your growing process in real-time. It takes all the hard work of out making data work for you, so you can focus on what you do best.
Realtime, Accessible Dashboard
With PYLOT you get a realtime, user friendly, comprehensible dashboard that presents all relevant data from your greenhouse(s). PYLOT provides you with insights, overview and all the information you need to optimize efficiency and harvest.
Check essential data on your desktop, tablet or mobile device. Make substantiated decisions and adjust your growing strategy where and when necessary.
PYLOT is available for 5 different crops, for the 5 most popular climate systems and in 5 different languages. To deploy PYLOT you will not need to buy new hardware equipment.
PYLOT makes growing easier.
DATA WITH A PURPOSE
See what matters. Without uncertainties. Without delay.
Modern greenhouses generate massive amounts of data. Interpreting this output is time consuming and requires specialized knowledge. Qualified people are scarce and hard to find. Besides that it feels like we’re asking them to become data analysts rather than growers.
LET PYLOT ANALYZE YOUR DATA, INTERPRET IT AND ADD CONTEXT TO IT:
- So you won’t see all the data all the time. Just what’s relevant for you.
- So you can stop looking back and start looking forward
- So your professionals can focus on what they do best: growing
- So you will get better results per M2.
- PYLOT makes planning, adjusting and optimizing easier than ever before.
- PYLOT collects, organizes and interprets all relevant data from the 5 most popular climate systems.
- At PYLOT you only see what is relevant for you.
- PYLOT works on your desktop, tablets and mobile devices.
- PYLOT is cloud based. All you need is a web browser. So: no additional investments, no additional hardware or time-consuming update procedures.
- PYLOT provides insights on your greenhouse’s efficiency.
- PYLOT uses algorithms and historical data to calculate your expected harvest.
- PYLOT helps you to make more substantiated management decisions.
- PYLOT helps you to get more efficient and goal oriented when investing in your greenhouses.
More food production for a world that demands it
Growers face growing demands and increasingly complex challenges. Climate, energy sources and growing methods differ strongly from country to country. In a world like this, reliable and comparable data is essential.
PYLOT opens the door to reliable harvest results. PYLOT increases a stable production and creates more opportunities for a sound profit. It empowers growers anywhere in the world to grow with less effort and more results.
Climate Insights is the newest feature of PYLOT which record incidents that disrupt the greenhouse climate. Initially, the program will address deviations in temperature and relative humidity. Other climate variables will be added to Climate Insights over time. Last year, PYLOT introduced the widely applicable and user-friendly ‘big data platform’ for the national and international horticulture sector with a goal to Make Growing Easier.
Despite climate computer control, an incident undermining the programmed greenhouse climate cannot be ruled out. A temperature or humidity level outside the computer’s configured set point could damage the crop. The climate computer should adjust the climate by itself, but there are always situations where this doesn’t occur sufficiently,’ says Marc Rooijakkers of PYLOT, explaining the principle of the new functionality.
'What Climate Insights does is to record the incident, taking several components into account such as the crop type, its age, the 24-hour period, solar radiation and the greenhouse type. Later the grower can recall the moment at which the situation occurred, analyze it and prevent any recurrence. PYLOT makes adjusting and optimizing easier than ever.
Four measurement settings
Climate Insights currently has four measurement settings to assess deviations: a temperature that is too high or low, and air humidity that is too high or low. PYLOT has undertaken extensive preparations for launching Climate Insights. Several customers were willing to test a first version of the program. Cultivation consultants are also involved closely in the development. Climate Insights has been further perfected based on this practical and positive feedback.
What makes Climate Insights unique are the self-learning algorithms. ‘Which allows the program to adjust itself continuously’, says Rooijakkers. ‘This ensures that only relevant incidents are reported, and that the program doesn’t respond unnecessarily.’ This occurs because growers can assign a ‘rating’ to recorded incidents. Graphs and overviews of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ days should offer growers more guidance in creating an well balanced greenhouse climate.
Growers remain closely involved in developing of Climate Insights. They will also help to determine what other climate variables needs to be built in, such as greenhouse’s CO2 levels.
In ongoing development
Climate Insights is available right now to all PYLOT users worldwide. The launch of Climate Insights rapid succession of another new feature: day-to-day harvest planning with Crop Cycles. PYLOT was introduced last year and is in ongoing development.
The data platform was created to translate data from various environments and brands of climate computers into usable management information for users worldwide. The aim is to make growing easier and give growers and investors insight and overview when fine-tuning their cultivation strategies. The data platform is available in five languages for the five main crops: tomato, sweet pepper, cucumber, eggplant and lettuce.
