Developing an agricultural robot equipped with Todos' sensors
As part of the STAR project, multisensor systems and sensor processing algorithms will be developed and implemented to enable agricultural robots to monitor fruit freshness levels, reduce food waste throughout the supply chain, and perform precision agriculture tasks, such as determining yields and applying pesticides and fertilizers locally. The envisaged idea is based on an integrated sensor network, including mobile gas sensors mounted on board of ground robots. Information coming from the fixed sensing devices will flag “attention spots” in the crop for further local investigation by the robotic platforms.
