A robotic greenhouse suitable for the North and the Arctic is being developed in Tomsk
«The TPU researchers are implementing a large-scale interdisciplinary project to develop and construct an innovative autonomous greenhouse testing site. The project would utilise advanced technologies developed by the scientists of the university: phytotrons, ceramic emitters, spectroscopic studies, automated control systems, and others,» the press officer said.
Polycrystalline luminescent materials are indeed promising from the standpoint of lighting engineering, the press officer added. Their advantages are due to the higher efficiency of conversion of UV radiation into visible light, as well as high thermal characteristics, which ensure a long service life of solid-state light sources. It is this technology that will be used in the future greenhouse.
