Herbot – An Open and Automated Countertop Aeroponic Factory for Herbs and Other Edible Small Plants #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

NewImage

Great countertop garden project from Ben Nortier on hackaday.io:

This is an experimental, open source (hardware & software), automated indoor countertop aeroponic factory that uses easily obtainable electronics and 3D printable & laser-cuttable parts. The goal is to build a fully automated system that will monitor humidity (DHT22) and NDVI imagery (Raspberry Pi Noir camera) and perhaps other sensors to control the watering, which utilises a COTS ultrasonic mister in an aeroponic setup.

Lighting will be provided by grow-light(s), initially using existing lights on the market with basic timing, but I plan on using light sensor(s) to control the lighting as well in the long run, and a custom grow-light that can easily be put on top.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
