It’s helpful for greenhouse builders, installers and suppliers of equipment and data services to have a standardized reference point for (automatic) positioning in greenhouses. The same applies to growers who use these greenhouses. That’s why Hortivation and TNO developed Hortivation Point. This standardised centre point of a greenhouse or section makes it easier to determine precise object positioning and ensure optimum equipment operation and synchronisation. Due to the rapid rise of autonomous processes and data streams, this standardised positioning is fast becoming essential.
