We start off 2020 with these platform improvements

February 17, 2020

The first round of updates in 2020 is a fact. Based on your feedback (thank you for that!), we’ve improved a couple of things that make the platform is more user-friendly. Amongst these improvements are functionalities that you probably don’t notice at first. But there are also some more notable adjustments. We briefly discuss with you what has changed and improved.

Some classic improvements
We are quite spoiled in today’s world when it comes to using digital applications. Nevertheless, we would like to reflect on these basic improvements. First of all, the axes of graphs now have labels and the graphs themselves load way faster when you use them. You can also save an image of the graph by right-clicking on the graph and choosing save image as. Graphs now also have a so-called crosshair (see No. 1 in the image below). These are the moving vertical and horizontal lines, which makes it easier to read the values on the axes.

Usability smartphone
Of course, mobile-first already was a thing in 2019, but we will happily continue this in the new year. Among other things, we have tackled the touchscreen interaction and it is now working properly. You can now read values, zoom in and scroll with your fingers, etc. Basically doing everything that you’re already used to with other applications. And, as you were able to read earlier this month, you can now also download our platform as a native app on your phone.

Posting comments
Posting comments is slightly different in the new version. Responses can now be placed on a graph line. Move the mouse over a line and click on a data point (see No. 2 in the image above) to post a comment. You will now see a speech bubble appear on the line itself (see No. 3 in the image above). Please note that comments added before this update remain in the old format. Below we show you how this new setup works.

 

Zoom in on graphs

Finally, we would like to explain to you how we improved the zoom functionality. This first looked like this:

And now like this:

What is striking is that the zoom buttons below the page are gone. Below the graph you’ll find a zoom bar, with which you can define which part of the graph you want to see. You can also no longer click on a graph and drag to zoom in. This functionality was extremely confusing, because it changed the interval. If you want a different interval now, you must use the dropdown. You can now also zoom in (as with many applications) with the keyboard combination ctrl + or by using your mouse wheel, touchpad or touchscreen.

Cultivation variables explained: growing degree units

In this blog, we would like to tell you something about growing degree units (GDH / GDD). The reason we added this to our dashboard is that during a lot of conversations our users often ask for this. Degree hour insights are used to pro-actively control cultivation. Growers however indicate that the calculation is time-consuming ...

Autonomous growing is no longer a far-fetched dream

The Autonomous Greenhouse Challenge has come to an end and we made it to the finish line. Our multidisciplinary team of horticultural experts and computer scientists from Delphy and 30MHz grew healthy cherry tomatoes remotely in 6 month’s time. In this period, we were able to develop the system and models needed to control a ...
