Since years Wageningen University & Research is working on autonomous #greenhouses, climate control, crop modelling, use of sensors, data, intelligence, computer vision and robotics. We develop new technology and new algorithms for and together with industry. You will find our solutions in many products in the sector already, maybe without recognizing it. We conduct research to understand crop physiology and product quality, we develop knowledge on climate control and plant phenotyping and are on the frontline of agrorobotics research to make new technologies useful.
In 2021/22 we will organise the 3rd International Challenge to sustainably grow vegetables in greenhouses by different international teams via fully automated control with the use of #AI. This year’s crop will be lettuce. And this time, it must be fully #autonomous!
The challenge will be set up in three main phases:
1. Online Challenge – Recruitment of AI teams and scouting of talents
2. Hackathon – Pre-selection of 5 teams for greenhouse growing experiment @WUR Bleiswijk
3. Greenhouse growing experiment – Remotely @WUR Bleiswijk
