The AlphaBotTM (Automated Cultivating Robot)
Starting with the indoor farm business, CESeL has the capacity to install the smart greenhouse of growing medical hemp which is in progress, and smart aquafarm platform based on AI image analysis, even more, provide the Conveyor CultureTM Platform with the ability to realize saving space, energy, and labor. The smart greenhouse provides a controlled environment customized to the crops that need to be cultivated inside. CESeL enables the smart greenhouse to bring together conventional agricultural systems and new IoT technologies to carry out complete control and automation. Besides, the Conveyor CultureTM Platform is a true concept of ‘Plant Factory’ with uniform and non-seasonal production of fresh crops and fodder. CESeL is pursuing integration into various agricultural fields through IT technology.
