PLEASED has been selected to exhibit the project results at ICT 2013 in Vilnius
The poster for ICT 2013 is available here
We met in Rome at WLAB premises and we discussed our improvements. Still a lot of work to do, but we are proceeding well. In particular the open dataset is a first remarkable result.
People from UNFI, LIMS and WLAB met for a whole week (from 15/4 to 19/4) in Florence to perform a new set of experiments on flames as stimuli with the purpose of finalizing the experimental set-up and collecting further data.
Remarkably, these results are coherent with the ones obtained by Davies et al “Characterization of the Variation Potential in Sunflower” Figure 1 also reported in “Electrical Signals in Plants: Facts and Hypotheses” Figure 17.2.
See the section results for further details
People from SOTON, UNIFI and WLAB meets at LINV premises to discuss the results already obtained, identify critical issues (e.g. simultaneity in responses) and design the next set of experiments to be performed in April.
In Ocober 2012 we had our second experimental session. Results are now available in our intranet and will be made public asap.
In the following the effects of a cut at 300 seconds are pretty visible
Similar results have been obtained with burns
The 18 September, Andrea Vitaletti will partecipate to the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) session of the competitiveness … Follow us on twitter at #ICTcw2012
Andrea Vitaletti gave a talk on “Plants as Biosensor” at the PLANTOID tutorial day in Barcelona.
In Florence we did the first experiments on stimulating plants with lights. As shown in the following picture, when the plant is subject to white and red lights it reacts generating visible change in its electrical activity.
Project Pier is a tool for project management. It allow us to 1) manage the exchange of messages between people involved in PLEASED, 2) have a Wiki, 3) Share files and documents
