A prototype of a smart greenhouse was assembled at Penza State University. While it is designed for one plant. But scaling it won’t be difficult when the computer program is finished. Now employees of the “Electric Power Engineering and Electrical Engineering” department are working on it together with farmers and programmers.

The greenhouse is a closed space where special lighting is installed. Change the spectrum of colors depending on the needs of the plant. By the way, the infrared lamps that vacationers use are not always useful. At different times, plants require blue and yellow, and green is destructive for the majority. To receive feedback online, a video camera was installed in the greenhouse and the plant was placed on a turntable, like in a microwave.

Artificial intelligence processes the information from the greenhouse, analyzes it and decides whether to change the light spectrum, illuminate or fertilize. And you don’t have to go to the greenhouse. And the optimal mode will save on utility bills. The developers claim that this technology could soon be available to summer residents.

“We taught neural networks to assess stem thickness, leaf plate area, and plant height,” said fourth-year student Sergei Markelov. He won a grant from the Umnik program and is now working on a universal plant growth sensor. Student projects are supported within the framework of the national project “Science and Universities” and the events of the Decade of Science and Technology.

In addition, the Federal Project “Artificial Intelligence” of the national project “Digital Economy” stimulates scientific research, provides financial support for the development of new AI solutions. In two years, almost 500 companies received grants, six university research centers and 80 master’s programs were opened at 16 leading universities in the country.
