The Distributed Robot Garden | Correll Lab

The Distributed Robot Garden | Correll Lab | RobotHub | Scoop.it
Our long-term goal is to develop an autonomous green house consisting of autonomous robots where pots and plants are enhanced with computation, sensing, and communication. The network of robots, pots, and plants transforms energy, water and nutrients into produce and fruits. In this type of precision agriculture system water and nutrients will be delivered locally on-demand and fruit will be harvested optimally.
