Automated and optimized plant cultivation with high pressure aeroponics

Reference number
Coordinator Optima Planta Sweden AB - Green Innovation Park, Ultuna
Funding from Vinnova SEK 300 000
Project duration May 2018 - April 2019
Status Completed
Venture Innovative Startups

Purpose and goal

The project goal was to introduce aeroponics as a farming method in a commercial setting, optimization models in the mathematical sense and a better automation process compared to traditional farming.

Expected results and effects

A successful growth module was developed, a sowing machine as well as optimization models. In order to improve the optimization models and receive conclusive results, more systematic experimentation has to be conducted in the growth modules.

Planned approach and implementation

The innovation has been derived primarily from a functional specification where the focus has been to enable optimization of models and a substantial increase in automation compared to traditional farming methods. The work process has been iterative in the sense that many versions has been made before the final working prototype was finished.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
