NCFU Researchers Develop Automated Greenhouse

NCFU researchers are currently working on developing a so-called smart greenhouse, where most of the operations will be performed by robots.

– We are focusing specifically on tomatoes since the Stavropol Region is among Russia’s leaders in this field of agricultural production, – Vladimir Antonov (Associate Professor, Dept for Applied Mathematics and Computer Security) was quoted as saying. – The technology could be adjusted to any other vegetable culture.

The greenhouse is to be equipped with several types of robots, each of them responsible for a particular area and operation. Besides, the robots will “seek” each other’s assistance in case they fail to perform by themselves.
