Vertical Farming: Ask the Experts | element14
Read about 'Ask the Experts' on element14.com. This is supplemental information provided to assist those participating in the Vertical Farming

In the Vertical Farming Design Challenge, we’re giving 15 selected Challengers a Kit of electronic components that can be used to provide the electronic infrastructure for a vertical farm proof of concept. The electronic design of the system is the main point of the Challenge; but one of the judging criteria will be the actual crops grown.

In an effort to level the playing field, we are requiring that each inventor grow the same (or similar) species of leaf lettuce. Soon we will announce that it’s time to germinate the seeds. That way, everyone will have been actually “growing” for the same roughly 50-day timeline – and it gives the inventors about a month to work on the electronics before they have to worry about starting the seeds.

We’re reaching out to professionals who know their way around an indoor garden who can help the engineers maximize their skills by providing details that will help them increase their crop yield.

To that end, we’d like to introduce:

  • Henry Gordon-Smith, Regional Manager in North America, The Association for Vertical Farming
  • Max Loessl, Co-Founder, Association for Vertical Farming
  • Milan Kluko, Founder and President, Green Spirit Farms
  • Cassie Lynch, Vertical Farm Assistant, FarmedHere
  • Matt Matros, CEO, FarmedHere
「TSL2561」はオレに真珠

TSL2561という照度センサーなんだが、確か買ったのは昨年の冬くらいで2個で5ドルとかそんな感じだったのにずっと放置していたのを「とりあえず机が片づかないしテストコードくらい走らせてみるか」と思い立ってようやく重い腰を上げつつ、ライブラリ落としてサンプルコードを走らせ、普通に動作完了。

でもこれを一体どうしろと?
そもそも何故コレを買ったのかオレ!

なんて問いただしたくなる位使い道をまるで思いつかず、久しぶりのワクワク感の全く無い電子工作に、希少な感情を抱いている所なのだ。

そんな訳で、特に照明の調光に興味があったり、農業をやっていて農作物や花の管理の参考にしたり、或いはハウス管理機材と連動させてみたい欲求が無い人にはちょっと微妙なセンサーというのが正直な感想だろうか。

・・・男の子にはもっとバイーンとか、ドゴーンって感じの浪漫が必要だな!!

Dual-axis Raspberry Pi 2 Solar Tracker

This project is an Open Source 2-axis solar tracker, designed to provide the optimal amount of power output for a portable setup. This has wide-ranging uses from camping to developing countries. I feel the best way to do this is to develop a combination of Open Source software and hardware to enable Makers globally to make and improve the design.
