Ridder introduces innovative indoor positioning system CoRanger

15 September 2021 | Int. Greenhouse Guide | Ridder

Ridder, specialist in the field of technological horticultural solutions, introduces CoRanger. This indoor positioning solution makes processes in the greenhouse transparent and allows them to take place more efficiently and accurately. Ridder CoRanger is a unique patented system that can pinpoint the positions of plants, people, and objects in the greenhouse to within 10cm. “With CoRanger, we’re taking precision horticulture to the next level.”

Ridder CoRanger responds to the growing need of horticultural companies to monitor and fine-tune their crops and processes in detail. Just like in precision agriculture, where farmers make skillful and frequent use of positioning systems, location-specific data & information also plays an important role in the greenhouse. With the Ridder CoRanger system, it is now possible to unlock a wealth of information and improve processes by using indoor position information.

Ridder CoRanger is based on a patented technology that uses beacons and tags to provide very accurate positioning data related to logistical systems, crops, drones, scouting solutions, sensors or even picking robots and data platforms. During the past year, the CoRanger system has been extensively tested and further developed for the fully automatic harvest and labour registration in the new greenhouses of Dutch tomato grower Duijvestijn. By applying the CoRanger concept in the Productive labour registration system, no time is lost on entering and checking harvest and production data. All registration takes automatically place in the background, without errors and is fully accurate and secure. This saves a lot of time and labour.

Joep van den Bosch, Chief Innovation Officer at Ridder underlines the importance of this ground-breaking new technology. “Growers have to do more with less. Positioning in the greenhouse enables us to look much more accurately at the efficiency of the various processes in the greenhouse. In addition to knowing how much or when things take place, CoRanger also tells you exactly where you can make improvements. Think, for example, of monitoring labour, scout crops or combating diseases and pests. With Ridder CoRanger, we offer a unique standard for bringing precision horticulture to the next level through extremely accurate real-time positioning.

Ridder introduces CoRanger as a new standard for position determination within greenhouses. In addition to its own smart solutions, Ridder will also make the technology available to developers of other precision horticulture related solutions. “Ridder CoRanger offers the horticultural sector the most accurate and reliable solution for locating plants, people and objects with an accuracy of 10 centimetres.  We will work to make this technique as widely available as possible to other providers of smart solutions in our sector.”
