To make their production sustainable, farmers and gardeners will increasingly use sensing, sensors networks and IoT (Internet of Things) technology. Examples include the measurement and regulation of water and nutrient content in the soil or the precise scheduling of a harvest. An important factor in the solution are green sensors, or sensors that are biodegradable. In large-scale use, current sensors leave electronic waste behind in nature.
The HTSF ‘Green Sensors’ program focuses on this new generation of sensors, which must become an effective and affordable alternative to the current sensors. The multidisciplinary working method of the team contributes to achieving valuable results.
