The greenhouse vegetable industry play an important strategic role in the adjustment of agricultural transformation mode and the reform of supply side in Heilongjiang Province. Facility horticulture in Heilongjiang Province develops rapidly in recent years, technical support is in great demand, but the experts' technology support for facility horticulture is far from enough. Experts' on-site guidance costs much time and money in the countryside, while the service efficiency is very low. To solve this urgent problem, the architecture of "greenhouse vegetable intelligent terminal system based on cloud service" and the key technologies of implementation (low-cost IoT, distributed real-time operating architecture, virtual expert service, neural network image recognition and mobile terminal service) were put forward. Based on expert services, supplemented by data mining technology, IoT devices were used as expert's remote perception means, smart phones as user terminals, cloud service for integrating knowledge, resources and Internet of Things data to provide vegetable experts and greenhouse vegetable users with high information acquisition, storage, analysis,decision-making capabilities and effective solutions. Experts could view vegetable production status in greenhouses remotely through the Internet, get image and growth environment data, then provide remote guidance to vegetable farmers through the system, expert knowledge would be stored, mined and reused by the system. The Internet of Things system could automatically send out early warning information by judging the air temperature, humidity, illumination intensity and soil moisture in greenhouse. The application of knowledge map and neural network technology would reduce the workload of experts and increase concurrent processing capability of services at the same time. At present, part of this research has been applied in different user groups such as agricultural research departments, enterprises, vegetable cooperatives and farmers in Heilongjiang Province. The system can provide experts with remote inquiry means of greenhouse vegetable production environment, and has the characteristics of simple deployment and low cost. It is suitable for various greenhouse vegetable scenarios, including fruit and edible fungi. In order to popularize this technology in greenhouse vegetable production in China, and achieve an efficient experts' technical support, this research also proposed technical solutions of a large-scale application scenario through cloud computing in future.
