I am brainstorming a couple of ways to allow the farmbot access to multiple levels of crops, as you could imagine the problem is that the gantry would collide with the supports for the plant beds in a multi story setting, I wanted to see if anyone had input on two ideas or ideas of their own.
the first would be to allow/code the gantry to “jump” tracks, the problem I see with this is that it would have to perfectly line up with the other tracks. However by using stops or lasers and some fine tuning I think you could find a way to do it.
the second option would be to only have one vertical arm as the gantry holding the cross slide, this would then be sort of like a crane and would give farmbot access to all the levels BUT it would still have to have a way to hinge or retract the long arm.
I’m sure there is a better way to do this than I am considering and would love some input!
