A new Agricultural Industry Standard for Autonomous Plant Production

Project description

Autonomous plant production

Based in northern Germany, RoBoTec PTC GmbH is a spin off of Bock Bio Science GmbH, a professional tissue culture laboratory and nursery, and a service laboratory for cloning and propagation. The company is now taking a step forward to becoming a technology leader and system supplier for autonomous in vitro plant cultivation. The EU-funded RoBoCut project provides a unique solution for in vitro plant propagation of high-quality plant species. A 3D image recognition and deep learning software will identify complex plant structures, cut them without contact and place them in new culture vessels. This process will be done automatically, in a sterile environment. The project's ultimate aim is to equip all plant laboratories with the innovation as a standard equipment for plant tissue culture, PTC, plant propagation.
