I3Dr is developing a 3D vision platform to monitor the growth of indoor crops such as chillies or strawberries. Combining state of the art 3D vision with a suite of sensors, the platform builds on I3Dr’s expertise in data fusion and will provide growers with useful quality metrics for their crops. The system is designed to be modular and extendable, and could be adapted for other environments.

• Track yields of a group of plants

• Monitor plant growth

• Provide information on the ambient growing environment

• Dashboard for user interaction

• Determine when individual fruits ripen and are ready for harvest

The system will be designed as a static platform with a robotic manipulator arm, but could be mounted on a moving platform such as a rover or linear rail/carriage.
