I want to build and enhance the farmbot https://farmbot.io/ and combine it with the PFC.
In the first step I want to build a prototype for indoor scientific usage.
After several discussions with http://www.alchemia-nova.net
I came to the following setup:
Plant area: 1m x 2m.
Maximum plant height 50cm.
Depth of the bed: 20cm to 30cm.
18 plants per bed
Distance between plants: 30cm
Ideal temperature between 21degree celsius and 25degree celsius
Wind simulation: Using fans (how many?)
LED Light: TBD
Water reservoir: ~80 litre per m2 in a month
Irrigation: TBD (drip irrigation?)
3D machine vision system producing big data for machine learning
Grey water usage?
- The PFC is designed for hydroponics.
Would it also work with aeroponics?
Would it also work with soil?
- Which compents of the PFC v2 are affected (how) by expanding the growth
chamber to my design setting?
- Air Cooler?
- Air heater?
- Air circulation fan(s)?
- Fresh air valve(s)?
- Water circulation pump?
- Peristaltic liquid pumps -> number?
- Size of liquid bottles?
- anything else?
- Additional questions will be posted in other categories
