P2-001
Project Status:
Active
Research Theme:
High-tech indoor horticulture

This four-year innovation project is led by WBS Project H, manufacturers of state-of-the-art LED technology for vertical farms and greenhouses, with AI and protected-cropping experts at UNSW and WSU respectively. Its aim is to design, implement and evaluate a novel wireless Internet of Things (IoT) system that optimises indoor farming practice, drawing on data from integrated sensor networks to minimise water and energy usage and maximise plant yield by controlling factors such as temperature, humidity and LED light spectrum.
