Mechatronic camera for the sprouting of bulbs of tulipa gesneriana l. In the Oriente Antioqueño
Trabajo de grado - Pregrado
ABSTRACT: Flowers are symbols of beauty because of their bright colors and diversity of shapes. This concept has been maintained for several centuries. Used as decoration in royal palaces and gardens, in addition to ceremonies of great importance and significance, they are in great demand in the world market. The Tulip is one of the most desired flowers today, although it is not native to Europe, Holland is now the largest producer of this flower in the world and of flowers in general. Colombia is the second largest producer of flowers in the world, but it does not grow tulips specifically because it does not have the climatic conditions for their germination. This work aims to develop a mechatronic system that simulates the climatic conditions suitable for the sprouting of tulips in Oriente Antioqueño and the Universidad EIA. The Oriente Antioqueño is one of the traditional flower growing areas in Colombia. To achieve this objective, a search for academic and scientific information will be carried out to identify the critical variables for tulip germination. This information will be the system inputs. A detailed design will be carried out, identifying the electronic, electrical and mechanical elements necessary for the construction of a prototype of a mechatronic sprouting chamber which, once finished and installed all the elements that make up the system, will proceed to carry out some functionality tests modifying parameters and recording the results.
