I was wondering if this was possible with FarmBot. I’m not entirely sure of it’s open source status and I know it is meant to be mounted permanently to a bed.
Basically what I want to do is have the kit mounted at a station and then have a roller system where I can slide plant bed trays underneath.
Basically the FarmBot will have a little stop for the tray and on the FarmBot at tray level there will be a rfid reader to identify the tray and then do it’s daily maintenance rituals. When it’s done the stop can be raised and I can push the next bed through on the rollers.
This would also rely on the FarmBot software being able to keep track of multiple instances of plots and being able to identify them with rfid.
To expand on the roller conveyor system theoretically would be on a loop so when you’ve completed the day’s maintenance the first tray you did will arrive back at the FarmBot station ready for daily maintenance tomorrow.
Eventually the idea would be to include automated conveyor pieces and automatically lifting the stop.
