      #Announcement(AgriTech) #Invitation #Challenge [ via IoTForIndiaGroup ]
      #Organizer : Tencent Exploration Team / Wageningen University in the Netherlands #EndDateTime : 1 Jan 2019 #StartDateTime : 20-Aug-2018


      The Autonomous Greenhouse Challenge competition at Wageningen University in the Netherlands started in September and wraps up in December
      The goal of the challenge is to produce a cucumber crop within 4 months inside a greenhouse remotely! Greenhouse space and controls will be provided by WUR and the teams are allowed to provide their own sensors and cameras.

      Each team will be able to extract necessary data from the greenhouse compartment and add their own ICT/models/machine learning algorithms in order to decide on the control settings for the next day or period.

      For more information, please feel free to reach out to us directly at autonomousgreenhouses@wur.nl :
