PA

Mission

We envisage a future of solar powered, autonomous, self-learning robots with powerful AI engines that roam inside greenhouses and arable plots 24/7 with minimal human supervision.

Our mission is to empower growers to reap the benefits of true precision agriculture. We approach this mission through a series of ingenious devices suitable for greenhouses & uneven terrain. We popularize precision agriculture and bring its benefits to a much wider audience than today.

We aim to become a globally recognized laboratory famous for its robotic solutions to agriculture and beyond.

Our Products

KYTION Aeir

A fast moving cablebot
for greenhouses.

KYTION Gaia

An agile quadruped
for uneven terrains.

Aeir

The Technology

  • AI neural engine
  • Solar powered
  • Measures: humidity, temperature, air composition & intensity, sunshine, rainfall
  • Collects: RGB & spectral images (optional)

The Benefits

  • Early warning for diseases and plant stress
  • Smart irrigation / fertilization*
  • Reduced inputs / Increased yields
  • Better overall yield quality
    *in collaboration with our OEM electric valve controller (8-16 irrigation zones) 

Description

Aeir has been designed to roam greenhouses in a fast and efficient way.
It collects 
vital microclimate data and transmits all this information to the system controller (flow valve). Based on its AI engine the system then decides on the irrigational needs of the greenhouse and operates all the climate control automations of the installation.

Currently suitable for selected crops, more are being added on a regular basis.

Release date: Spring 2021

Gaia

The Technology

  • 16 DOF (degrees of freedom) – 4 legs & 1 robotic arm
  • Obstacle recognition & avoidance
  • Collects: RGB images
  • Can collaborate with Aeir & the smart irrigation installation

The Advantages

  • Moves freely on any terrain (terrain agnostic)
  • Up close plant inspection
  • Continuous weeding

Description

Gaia has been specifically designed for use in the rugged terrains of vineyards and olive groves around the Mediterranean basin. It carries an array of sensors including a soil sensor, enabling it to perform soil checks at various points in the field. We are currently investigating its weeding ability without the use of chemicals.

Please contact us for further consultation.

Release date: To be announced

About

KYTION Labs belongs to the Patras innovation ecosystem that is developing around Patras University. Based inside the grounds of Patras Science Park, the company is structured between two electrical engineers and a seasoned business executive who also happens to be a precision agriculture expert.

Whilst our first Aeir cablebot pilots roam farms and greenhouses from Meteora in central Greece to the southernmost island of Crete, we are preparing the launch of our MVP Aeir system in spring 2021, whilst our Gaia agbot is destined to stay-on in the barracks for a little longer.

KYTION Labs is currently raising its pre-seed round.
