Case Valoya: Creating optimal light conditions using IoT

Valoya provides LED grow lights that optimize plant growth in any location in an energy-efficient way.

TARGET:  LED manufacturer needed a cloud based IoT solution to get solar simulation system.

OUR SOLUTION: We developed an Azure IoT based software solution that allows user to create specific light conditions from remote location in any other location. The system captures light spectrum, for example in Brazil, and uses 8 different types of LEDs with calculated power levels to achieve the same spectrum in user location. The system utilizes many Azure technologies, such as Azure Stream Analytics and Azure Machine Learning, to achieve best possible analogue of the original spectrum.

FOLLOW-UP: We are developing the system and the hardware further to be able to use the system with even bigger setups. The long-term plan is to learn what kind of light each type of plant needs and that way speed up their growing.
