Take a look of project's partnership.
The goal of current project is to realize the technological scale-up of the first ever efficient and cost-effective robotic harvesting system applied to greenhouse farming of tomatoes.
In fact, to date, no commercial product for automated operations on tomatoes is available because of several technological constraints linked with the unstable environment of the indoor farming, as well as with the difficulty to grasp malleable and easily damageable fruits.
Metomotion has found solutions to all the challenging technical steps, thereby enabling profitable harvesting of tomatoes and making it possible to growers to harvest the fruits throughout the year and not being exposed to the labor shortage.
By doing so, the harvesting costs are halved and labor reduced by 80%. In the context of thePrecision Farming approach, automation in the agricultural sector is particularly solicited and Metomotion is offering a product capable to satisfy the most compelling needs of the growers.
The core innovations brought by Metomotion consist of: - Advanced 3D vision system to clearly identify ripe fruits among leaves and stems - Extensible multiple robotic arms to increase harvest speed - Touch sensitive terminals to avoid damage and loos of fruits - Fully autonomous vehicle embedding boxing system for the automated packing of collected fruits.
The activities of the Phase 2 projects are related with the enhancement of the prototype performance through optimization of both hardware parts like robotic arm and AGV, as wells as related SW and User Interface. Interactions with users occurred during Phase 1 project have shown immense interest toward GRoW product from all over the world (about 100 expressions of interest collected), thus paving the basis for the successful commercialization of the product. A detailed commercialization strategy will be developed in the course of this project to allow global sales.
Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "GROW" project.
For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.
Send me an email (email@example.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.
Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
