Title: Robotics%20


1
Robotics Imagining Systems
  • Working Group I
  • Autonomous Robotic Greenhouse Workshop II
  • Guelph, Ontario
  • 8 September 2005

2
What Industry Needs
  • Near-term requirements
  • Cutting costs to remain competitive for the next
    5 years
  • Biggest costsharvesting!
  • Longer-term considerations
  • Stop thinking in square metres start thinking in
    cubic metres
  • Cost savings up to 3.5x
  • The future is 3D greenhousing!
  • Return-on-investment horizon Less than 3 years

3
The Storyline. . .
Economics
Need CFI
4
The Grand Mission. . .
  • To automate growing operations from seed to table

5
The Big Question. . .
  • What is the science and technology required to
    enable cost-efficient growing operations in
    enclosed systems?
  • Logistics (moving plants vs moving equipment)
  • Energy considerations
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Sensing automation
  • Robotics

6
Focus of Proposal
  • Development of science and technology to realize
    the 3D greenhouse of the future
  • Comparison of future conventional greenhouse
    operations to 3D greenhouse operations
  • Infrastructure
  • Conventional greenhouse
  • Baseline 3D greenhouse, suitable for innovative
    experimentation
  • Robotic and automated systems

7
Declared Interests
  • OGVG, YorkU (3D greenhousing)
  • OMA (cost-effective production)
  • UofWindsor, NRC IMTI, YorkU (virtual greenhouse
    modeling)
  • Neptec, UofGuelph, UWO (imaging)
  • Unisearch, UTMIE (3D gas analysis)
  • Honey Electric (systems integration)
  • UofGuelph, UTIAS, YorkU, NRC IMTI, OCE
    (robotics)
  • Niagara College (photonics)
  • NRC IMTI (post-harvest operations)
  • EMS, UofGuelph, UofWindsor (plant-health
    monitoring)
