Field spraying tests were performed with iRTA autonomous robotic platform, as part of the ESMERA Project steep slope vineyard spraying challenge. Evidently, iRTA is well underway to demonstrate a mature robotic solution for next season’s trials.
Installation of the spraying module
The Smart Farming Technology group of the Agricultural University of Athens has installed the new high-end spraying module on the iRTA platform. More developments will follow soon on the navigation and perception system of the robot by the project partners.
iRTA: New research project for developing agricultural robot for precision spraying
AGENSO proudly announces that participates at the granted proposal of the iRTA (intelligent robotic high precision treatment application in rough terrain vineyards) program that was submitted to the open call of the ESMERA project, funded by the European Union’s “Horizon 2020” program. AGENSO for the next nine months along with SCiO systems, Roboskel Lab –...
Article regarding iRTA project at Ypaithros Chora
iRTA robotic platform for precision spraying in steep slope vineyards (iRTA project) was presented at the Greek newspaper Ypaithros Chora by project partners SCiO systems. Mr. Panagiotis Zervas presented the expected benefits of using the robotic platform for viticulturists saying that: “The expected benefits of using the robotic platform for viticulturists are to reduce the...
