SusMedHouse 

 

Efficient, Eco-Friendly, Sustainable Mediterranean Greenhouse Integrated with Artificial Intelligence, Hi-Tech Automation and Control System

 

Prima Call 1.2.2. 

 

Abstract

 

The aim of SusMedHouse is to develop a sustainable greenhouse system to enhance the productivity and decrease consumption of resources through self-learning artificial intelligence (AI) and high-tech automation and control system. Deep learning AI will provide tailor-made optimization via minimizing inputs for maximum output using sensor network integrated with image processing tools. Optimization of economic factors related with production will increase competitiveness of greenhouses in Mediterranean region. Innovative methods in pest and pathogen management, and novel materials used in the greenhouse will contribute to not only environmental preservation but also efficient use of resources.

A 2000 m2 greenhouse will be designed and built. AI, decision support system, advanced image processing with bio sensors, new cover materials, innovate pest/pathogen management, new superior growth media and agrophotovoltaics will be demonstrated. All these systems will be developed with multidisciplinary approach by an experienced team, which is an adept combination of academics, R&D companies and an end-user. Experiments will be mainly focused on lettuce, tomatoes and pepper cultivation.
