"Our livestream is a new step towards autonomous growing"

LetsGrow.com has integrated the Google Glass into their smart dashboard and developed visual data support; the LetsGrow Livestream. With the use of the Google Glass, it is now possible to enter a greenhouse without setting foot over the threshold. With the LetsGrow Livestream, one is digitally 'in control' and able to get an even better picture of the crop from a distance.

Digital innovation
In 2020, LetsGrow.com introduced digital crop management, where high-quality photos and videos from the greenhouse stream to a central dashboard on the MyLetsGrow platform. "The LetsGrow Livestream is a logical next step, especially at a time when it is increasingly difficult to be physically present at every location at all times. Using sharp images and voice options, it is possible to view the crop in more detail. As a user in the greenhouse, you have your hands free to properly visualize the desired parts of the crop. In addition, the viewer can indicate, using speech options, what he would like to take a closer look at," the LetsGrow team explains. 

"The advantages of the LetsGrow Livestream are plenty. You get to see a detailed picture with which the right information is available, communication is easy by voice, there is a larger span of control and it saves time."

The next step towards autonomous cultivation

Ton van Dijk, Global Head of Sales and Operations at LetsGrow.com, explains: "LetsGrow.com is there to optimize business processes and results for all stakeholders such as investors, growers, and advisors. Nowadays, visiting a greenhouse is not always possible and entering a greenhouse is not without risk; viruses lie in wait. In addition, greenhouses are located all over the world and there is a lot of travel back and forth between the various locations. Google Glass offers a solution in these situations and makes it possible to get in touch with each other more often and more easily. In addition, one can see the live images, together with the climate and crop data and photos, side by side on a dashboard in the MyLetsGrow platform. Correlations between what is seen and what the data indicates can therefore be quickly and easily detected, enabling a grower or crop consultant to respond even better to what is actually happening. It really is like looking over each other's shoulders. The LetsGrow Livestream is one in a series of innovations that LetsGrow.com will be rolling out shortly.”
