The EU-H2020 MSCA-IF Predictive Robots project is also about spreading the adoption of a developmental paradigm and of predictive processes for different robotic applications. Greenhouses are complex systems that can be controlled, and whose states – and those of their crops – can be measured with a rich variety of sensors. From this point of view, they are not much different than robots. So, why not applying the ideas of developmental robotics on innovative greenhouses, as well?
Luis Miranda and I presented a work on “Adaptive Architectures towards portability of Greenhouse Models” at Greensys 2019, in Angers, France.
Adaptive models, trained in an incremental fashion, will help transferring knowledge between lab facilities and production greenhouses!
