Fostering and Enabling AI, Data and Robotics Technologies for Supporting Human Workers in Harvesting Wild Food

Project description

Advanced technologies to support wild berry pickers

It is estimated that less than 10 % of annual wild berry production in Nordic countries is harvested manually from forests. Due to the short season, most pickers are migrant labourers with limited knowledge of the language, culture and forests. As such, their working conditions represent the main challenge in manual forest harvesting. The EU-funded FEROX project will improve the working conditions of the wild berry pickers through advanced technologies. The project will employ autonomous drones equipped with various sensors to acquire data used to build AI models and 3D models of the forests to precisely estimate berries’ locations, amounts and types. FEROX will demonstrate the solution in the Finnish forests.
