The first Bulgarian smart vertical garden Botanic Wall

Predistic developed the smart technology for the first Bulgarian smart vertical garden named Botanic Wall

A fully tested prototype of the high-tech vertical garden was officially unveiled on 12 October 2023 in Sofia by the Bulgarian interior and exterior landscaping company Botanic Lab. As a technology partner of Botanic Lab, Predistic undertook the whole software and hardware R&D for the automatic watering of the garden only when needed, the intelligent remote control via smartphone, and the monitoring of air conditions including lighting, noise level, temperature, humidity, level pollution with fine particles and organic components.
The system has its own water tank and does not require a connection to a sewer.
Thanks to its automation and intelligent control, the innovative vertical garden manages to improve indoor air quality significantly while reducing the amount of water for irrigation by an average of 30% and saving users maintenance time.

BAIT awards 2022

Final and award from BAIT Awards 2022 for important contribution in the Bulgarian ICT sector development

Another recognition for GRAS Smart Agriculture Systems by Predistic! The product was both finalist in the Successful Bulgarian ICT Product/Service category and won the main award in the ICT Project for the Benefit of the Bulgarian Economy category at the "BAIT Awards" for Information and Communication Technologies for 2022!.
The awarded installation was implemented on a personalized order for PRO PLANTS Ltd., one of the largest producers of ornamental plants in Bulgaria. The tailored solution, called GRAS System for Real-time Automation of Greenhouses based on Meteorological Conditions, provides automatic control over the existing mechanisms for controlling sunshade blinds and windows to create optimal conditions for the plants in the greenhouse.
The automation is based on real-time measurements of temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction, solar radiation, and precipitation. The windows and window blinds can be fully or partially opened or closed to allow precise light and ventilation levels.
By using the system, the company transforms its overall business model, saving time, electricity, reducing risks for the plants, and increasing yields.
