СOMPARISON WHITH CONVENTIONAL TECHNOLOGY
Racks with walkways. Constant move of people and machines on aisles, both horizontally and vertically.
Light, water, sensors – has to be positioned on each tray.
High power lamps will burn the plants.
Trays have to be lifted down and transported to seeding or harvest, or robots have to be moved to reach the trays.
No movement of people and machines between trays.
Much less LED, hydration, sensors can be used, tray will come and go automatically.
More powerful lamps can be used as the plants are passing by, changing angle and distance.
Tray moves and naturally reaches automation points (harvest, seeding).
