Abstract

Greenhouse farming is based on the control of the environment of the crops and the supply of water and nutrients to the plants. These activities require the monitoring of the environmental variables at both global and local scale. This paper presents a ground robot platform for measuring the ground properties of the greenhouses. For this purpose, infrared temperature and soil moisture sensors are equipped into an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV). In addition, the navigation strategy is explained including the path planning and following approaches. Finally, all the systems are validated in a field experiment and maps of temperature and humidity are performed
