Every Iron Ox greenhouse uses robotics and artificial intelligence to ensure our plants receive optimal levels of sunshine, water, and nutrients, allowing us to reduce our impact on the environment.
Our team of world-class roboticists and engineers design and build all of our robots, and Iron Ox robots perform many of the repetitive and time-consuming tasks in a greenhouse. Grover, the recently announced autonomous mobile robot, transports 6-by-6-foot plant modules and docks with our newest filling robot, Max, which then hygienically fills the modules precisely to the required volume and nutrient mix using advanced sensors. Grover also brings the modules for checkups throughout each plant module’s growth cycle, and Max then senses the water level and nutrient mix and adjusts it to match its target settings. When Max is done with its work, Grover takes the plant module back to its respective place in the greenhouse.
Our robots also continuously gather large amounts of data from our plants as they grow, so we are constantly learning and improving our process, ensuring we consistently produce the highest quality food and reduce the environmental impacts of farming. Contact us if you have any questions.
