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 – IIT Demokritos and Precision Agriculture Laboratory of Agricultural University of Athens will be working on the development of a robotic platform for precision spraying in steep slope vineyards.

For the development of the robotic platform, cutting-edge robotic technologies will be combined such as the capability of autonomous navigation in the vineyard and the possibility of avoiding obstacles, the high precision spraying technologies as well as the artificial intelligence technologies that will recognize and perform appropriate spraying applications according to the needs of the vineyards. The robotic platform will be piloted in vineyards.

Main aim for the partners is to commercially exploit the robotic platform, starting with the cultivation of vineyards and further developing it so that it can be applied to other crops.
