Together with partners, Ridder develops a new concept for growing tomatoes. This growing concept makes efficient use of resources like energy, water and nutrients and allows for extensive automation. A digital twin of this revolutionary system would be a valuable tool in the design of complete nurseries and in the operational control of growing. The digital twin consists of crop physiology, mechanical system, and operational control.
Ridder is looking for an intern with expertise in modelling and optimization and is easy with programming in Python. You will work in a development team of crop scientists, software developers and mechanical engineers. Currently, we are running crop trails and tests of the mechanical parts. Next year we aim to design and build a pilot greenhouse.
