Working student

16 hrs/week - The Hague, Netherlands

Help us develop technology that feeds the world

AI is revolutionising agriculture at a fast pace. From farm to fork - every link in the value chain will become data-driven. VanBoven plays an important role in this transition by providing vegetable farmers with the tools needed to develop accurate harvest predictions. This information is crucial to producers, distributors, wholesalers, industry and retailers in order to optimise the value chain and reduce food waste.

VanBoven develops harvest predictions based on high-resolution aerial imagery. Our algorithms identify every single plant on the field and extract physical plant traits using object-based image analysis. By tracking these traits over time we create predictive models for plant growth and time to harvest. And we can use some hands in doing so!
