Robotics & Imagining Systems

Working Group I

Autonomous Robotic Greenhouse Workshop II

Guelph, Ontario

8 September 2005

what industry needs
What Industry Needs
  • Near-term requirements:
    • Cutting costs to remain competitive for the next 5 years
    • Biggest costs–harvesting!
  • 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
the storyline

Automation

Automonous Robotic Greenhouse

The Storyline. . .

Economics

Need CFI

the grand mission
The Grand Mission. . .
  • To automate growing operations from seed to table
the big question
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
focus of proposal
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
