The developing requirement for smart cultivating inferable from the massively rising populace is one of the key factors that is anticipated to enhance the development of the global smart greenhouse market in the following couple of years.
By project conclusion in 2020, SHI expects to have the data required for recommending scientifically-sound soil health indicators to help farmers, scientists, agricultural policy makers, and others answer the fundamental question: Just how healthy are our soils?
The first project partners with industry to use robotics to aid farmers with mobility impairments. The Partnership for Innovation grant is a collaborative effort between Virginia Techs College of Engineering and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences,
There are many different types of potential applications of AI in agriculture -- ranging from machine control, to image analysis, to improving our understanding of where, when, and how a crop might respond toparticular environmental conditions.
Gina Belli for Pay Scale: There arent enough young farmers in this new generation to replace the ones who are retiring. But, the shift could "contribute to the growth of the local food movement and could help preserve the place of midsize farms in the rural landscape"
Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
