Hallo Technologie: gluren bij de buren

Het i-FAST team neemt u mee op excursie naar Nederland, waar we te gast zijn bij Holst Centre in Eindhoven. Daar worden we ondergedompeld in een wereld van draadloze sensortechnologie, flexibele elektronica en het internet of things.

Wat zijn hun toepassingen en mogelijkheden met betrekking tot agrovoeding en hoe zit het met die datasecurity? Philips laat zijn licht schijnen op city farming en we komen te weten hoe Brainport Eindhoven open innovatie aanpakt.

Introductie Holst Center

Holst Centre, located on High Tech Campus Eindhoven, is an independent R&D center that develops technologies for wireless autonomous sensor technologies and for flexible electronics, in an open innovation setting and in dedicated research trajectories. A key feature of Holst Centre is its partnership model with industry and academia based around shared roadmaps and programs. It is this kind of cross-fertilization that enables Holst Centre to tune its scientific strategy to industrial needs.

Internet of Things for monitoring in AgroFood en het potentieel van gas & ion sensoren (Marcel Zevenbergen, imec)

Connectivity and in general internet connectivity is making its way in nearly all fields. Sensing for AgroFood is gaining more and more interest. Especially connecting more sensors in closer proximity to the plants to the cloud for data-analytics to provide feedback for optimization of growth, be it in control of temperature, lighting or CO2 ventilation, is a next step.

Acidity (pH) and conductivity are two parameters commonly used in greenhouses to control and verify the dosing of nutrients. In this presentation, I will introduce a small, inexpensive sensor that includes both parameters on a single chip. Moreover, we are also including so-called ion-selective electrodes on the same chip such that the level of nutrients could be determined specifically.

Flexible electronics and packaging (Herman School, TNO)

The form factor in which electronic functionalities such as light, solar cells, sensor systems, etc. are used is changing from 3D-boxes towards thin, flexible and even stretchable sheets. This means that these can be integrated in/on existing surfaces like a "sticker" or even be in a rollable curtain that can be deployed easily when needed.

City Farming (Gus van der Feltz , Philips Grow Wise)

City Farming makes it possible to grow tasty and healthy food virtually anywhere, regardless of the weather or season. Local production ensures freshness while substantially reducing waste because a minimum amount of transport is involved. What's more, this is achieved using a fraction of the water and land area associated with conventional farming. Philips develops lighting solutions, addressing the growing demand for healthy, sustainable and affordable food.
