Smart Greenhouse - Greenhouse with internet connection for smart management

The Smart Greenhouse is 22m2 and used to grow safe fruits and vegetables in limited spaces with limited maintenance and footprint.

The system guarantees the food safety, quality and traceability of vegetables with its self-managed vertical aquaponic system. These greenhouses can be placed in "dead" locations such as city rooftops, concrete grounds, polluted soils, tertiary space, indoor surfaces, and abandoned islands. The greenhouse features a 'smart system' as it includes water and climatic sensors. It sends data directly to the cloud with a IOT connection ("Low-power Wide-area network (LPWAN)") and processes the data collected with a remote AI machine in order to push smart notifications to the user and feed the system's agronomic knowledge. For example, the smart greenhouse will track the water pH, send data to the cloud, cross the information with the climatic data and inform the user that the system has spotted algae development in the water tank and that indicate the necessary corrective actions.
