SOLLUM TECHNOLOGIES TAKES HOME GREENHOUSE TECHNOLOGY AWARDS IN PRODUCTION CATEGORY

The company is delighted to receive this award as a testament to the Sollum team’s hard work in creating a smart LED lighting solution that improves greenhouse efficiency by replicating the effect of natural sunlight on plant growth.

Montréal, Québec, Canada, October 4, 2021  Sollum Technologies' smart LED lighting solution has won the Greenhouse Technology Awards in the Production category. The company is delighted to receive this award as a testament to the Sollum team's hard work in creating a smart LED lighting solution that improves greenhouse efficiency by replicating the effect of natural sunlight on plant growth.


Debuting this year, the Greenhouse Technology Awards, presented by Greenhouse Canada and sponsored by the Canadian Greenhouse Conference (CGC), recognize significant technological advances in the areas of greenhouse and controlled environment agriculture. The choice of winner was decided based on four primary criteria: innovation, importance, effectiveness, and impact. In their feedback, the judges specifically highlighted the diverse applications of Sollum's technology - including its numerous benefits in winter pepper production  and were also impressed by the ability of the solution to be integrated with existing greenhouse control systems.

"This Greenhouse Technology Award highlights Sollum Technologies' continued commitment to producing cutting edge tech solutions in the controlled horticulture sector" says Sollum Technologies' VP Business Development, Kassim Tremblay. "Receiving this recognition following other major achievements goes to show that Sollum is emerging as a leader among its competitors in greenhouse innovation."

This is the second award that Sollum Technologies has won in the last months, the other being the prestigious Sapphire Award in the horticultural lighting category. Sollum's LED lighting solution also obtained DesignLights Consortium (DLC) certification. Read the respective press releases for these accomplishments here and here.

IDS NXT ocean: grab, label, train, run AI

Artificial intelligence can be used, for example, to classify fruit varieties or to identify damaged parts, e.g. apples with marks or color deviations. To cover all possible variances with classical image processing would be very time-consuming and costly. With artificial intelligence, however, these challenges can be solved in no time at all. IDS NXT ocean is a user-friendly all-one-one system which requires neither special knowledge in deep learning nor camera programming. Only sample images and knowledge on how to evaluate them (e.g. "good apples" / "bad apples") are needed. This makes the start into AI-based image processing particularly easy. Camera hardware, software, infrastructure and support come from a single company. For beginners, IDS offer the IDS NXT ocean Creative Kit, which includes all components and workflows to create, train and run a neural net.
