With the capability to produce 500 kilograms of cultured products a day, equivalent to 5,000 hamburgers, this facility makes scalable cell-based meat production a reality.
As growers are looking for new ways to optimize crop production, San Francisco-based FarmWise leverages the latest advances in artificial intelligence and robotics to offer plant-level farming as-a-service.
Big indoor farms are attracting big investments. But transforming agriculture might depend on putting nanofarms everywhere-maybe even in your home.
Consus has developed an intelligent software-based system that reduces the burden of audits and improves productivity. By linking HR records to labour deployment the facial recognition module enables accurate costing of all products and improved traceability.
Cambridge researchers have developed what is believed to be the first robotic lettuce leaf peeling system of its kind.
In a field of sugar beet in Switzerland, a solar-powered robot that looks like a table on wheels scans the rows of crops with its camera, identifies weeds and zaps them with jets of blue liquid from its mechanical tentacles.
Meagan Flynn for The Atlantic: They might be an efficient way to produce food in a world with more-extreme weather-but only if growers can figure out a successful business model.
Shaped like a pane of glass, a luminescent solar concentrator is typically transparent, but contains a luminescent dye that absorbs light within a particular spectral range, then re-emits the light at a different wavelength.
Seung Lee for The Mercury News: An Oakland-based startup is sending its aerial imaging technology to the Midwestern plains to help farmers detect pests and diseases in their corn and soybean fields before an outbreak.
Karen Graham for Digital Journal: An agrophotovoltaics (APV) pilot project conducted at Lake Constance has proven that farming and the use of solar panels can be compatible.
David Szondy for New Atlas: "Obviously the footprint needs to be small, so you have to go vertical. And you'll need to use artificial lighting. These are the problems we decided to solve for."
Mina Solanki for IAmExPat: Floating Farm will be made from a concrete base and will measure around 1.000 square metres. The roof will be fitted with solar panels and a rainwater collection system.
Sonya Mann for Inc.com: Blue River Technology is building machines that help farmers manage their crops more efficiently.
AgWeb.com: An influx of investors is bringing more money to seed-stage AgTech startups. And while that is an incredible thing for the industry at large, it certainly comes with its own set of challenges.

The rapid development of robotics has led to an increasing demand for 3D camera technologies in recent years. The reason is the decisive role they play in improving the performance and versatility of robots. However, many of these applications require more sophisticated solutions that deliver much more than just depth information of the environment. The new compact Ensenso C camera from IDS Imaging Development Systems combines a wide range of functions and features to capture and interpret 3D data more efficiently and accurately. With an additional and fully integrated RGB camera, the new Ensenso C now also allows to capture 2D color images. This extends the camera's range of applications when not only a 3D point cloud but also a color image is needed to solve a task. This could be AI-based image analyses, for example, for which these images are required. Its compact housing is completely enclosed and complies with protection class IP65/67. This reliably protects the camera from environmental influences and vibrations. In addition, Ensenso C is delivered pre-configured and is therefore ready for use.
