OpenAg Brain

openag_brain is the software stack running on a suite of hardware known as food computers. It is being developed at the MIT Media Lab's Open Agriculture Initiative.

The architecture is based on ROS(Robot Operating System) and is able to support flexible hardware configurations.

The main piece of hardware that openag_brain runs on, the PFC(Personal Food Computer) v2 uses a Raspberry Pi and an Arduino to control the climate inside a small growth chamber. (Render shown above.)

The parts that I have worked on are mainly the software, but I have also conducted some hardware assembly as well:

The openag_brain software stack has also been used on other food computers, like the fermentabot

The fermentabot has been deployed in the Basque Culinary Center.
