HYDROPONICS FARMING PROJECT.

In the future, the world might need to break away from traditional crop cultivation and adopt soilless technology, especially if we’re going to feed a growing population or colonise space. To do that we need to design systems that combine sensors, water circulation systems and measure energy input. This example explores soilless cultivation, where sensors obtain temperature data, acidity, alkalinity and air quality data, and let us control them remotely through the software platform. By monitoring and evaluating all these variables we can hopefully produce food that not only tastes good, but also is could be healthier, greener and more environmentally friendly.
