The well-known phenomena of pollution and climate warming are increasingly threatening the quality and quantity of food worldwide. Smart farming is expected to be an effective countermeasure, and much research is available regarding the usefulness of applying technology and the Internet of Things (IoT) to agricultural production, including that using the hydroponic method. The aim of this study is to present a synthesis of the literature review on the critical need to improve the sustainable food approach, including the exploitation of advanced hydroponics systems, to then explain the benefits of an innovative ‘automatic hydroponic greenhouse-appliance’, patented under the name of RobotFarm. Features and positive effects of the appliance on micro and macro levels are discussed.
