AI takes the wheel in autonomous cucumber greenhouse project

Wageningen University & Research’s AGROS project aims to develop an autonomous greenhouse using AI algorithms and digital twin technology for remote control of cucumber cultivation. As greenhouse cultivation faces challenges such as staff shortages and increasing resource costs, the project uses non-invasive sensors to monitor crop characteristics and support management decisions for sustainable cultivation.

The project has three compartments where it pits digital twin technology, reinforcement learning, and human experts against each other to achieve the best crop yields.

It is a public-private partnership that includes Greenport West Holland, Hortilux, Ridder, and Philips.
