GreenPEAK-IT signs partnership with Inaho Europe B.V.
Inaho Europe B.V. (subsidiary of Inaho Inc., Headquarters: Kanagawa, Japan, hereafter, “Inaho”) started the data connection between the company’s latest product: a tomato harvesting robot and GreenPEAK-IT (- a Bosman Van Zaal company) PEAK Platform. The companies also entered the partnership for working closely on the development of combining the robotics and data platform for further business development.
On the way to smart and automated greenhouse
The purpose of this collaboration is to establish the first step of the data connection between the harvesting robot and the data platform. As the horticulture industry will move towards more connected, data-driven, automated, and sustainable production, Inaho believes that the integration of data collected by robots will be a key competence of robotization in the greenhouse. Inaho also foresees the future that the useful data for production forecasts and the required data for predictive maintenance of the robots can be provided by the integrated data platform.
Remote monitoring of the harvesting robots in Japan from the Netherlands
Throughout this collaboration, Inaho’s harvesting robots operating in Japan have been monitored by the PEAK data platform in the Netherlands. This collaboration also enables the performance of the robots in Japan and in the Netherlands to be compared under different circumstances. Together with PEAK, Inaho will keep developing more features to make it possible to remotely control the performance of the harvesting robot with predictive maintenance.
