A Collaborative Paradigm for Human Workers and Multi-Robot Teams in Precision Agriculture Systems

Project description

Robots as new farm hands

Since the beginning of the 20th century, numerous attempts have been made to commercialise the work of agriculture and increase productivity. While manpower is a central element of any agricultural activity, the development of efficient data-driven technological solutions based on robotics and artificial intelligence is key for the sustainable agriculture in the future. The EU-funded CANOPIES project will explore a novel paradigm of human-robot collaboration in the field facing the concrete test case of the harvesting and pruning operations in table-grape vineyards across four years. The project will demonstrate how a team of heterogeneous robots, some with robotics arms, others with carrying capabilities, will operate alongside with farm workers, opening new perspectives on farm and crop management.
