Illumitex terminates LED lighting operations, shifts focus to AI

Illumitex terminates its LED lighting operations, aiming to become a pure AgTech computer-vision AI company that deploys edge vision systems, edge AI, and cloud services to provide visualization and augmented intelligence for controlled environment agriculture. “With installations ramping, we are seeing that FarmVisionAI is more valuable to farmers than LED lighting and we are refocusing our resources to accelerate deployments” said Jeff Bisberg, CEO. “By capturing images of every plant at every moment, we create a unique data-set that allows us to close the digital feedback loop and drive amazing new outcomes, at scale, for our customers.”

FarmVisionAI provides three groups of features:

  1. Visualization: Growers and farmers can see every plant on the farm from anywhere at any time. This provides confidence and assurance as to what is happening to the crop and enables remote high-resolution scouting. Expert consultancy is also available to enhance your team in the detection and solution of anomalies.
  2. Augmented intelligence: Horticulturist curated AI provides accurate digital scouting of what’s happening with the crops. We detect, report, and alert. A pipeline of new detections provides continued value and intelligence expansion.
  3. Labor management: Monitor and track exactly where every person is on the farm by utilizing heat maps, pictures, locations, and activities.

Illumitex’s FarmVisionAI can be deployed in any grow architecture from containers, to vertical, to warehouse, to greenhouse. Easy installation, without the need for motors or tracks, and does not require the deployment of registration markers in the grow. Cameras are wireless and connect to the cloud through Illumitex deployed gateways and on-site server.

Currently the system works with leaf greens and determinant plants. While the first AI algorithms are cannabis focused, new detections can be activated with as little as 10,000 images of the desired detection target.
