Rovitis 4.0 is the project that actually Azienda Agricola Pantano is leading. The project is founded by Veneto region and aims at obtaining a more robust and usable machine, for more information visit the project.
The project sees cooperation between several partners:
- Azienda Agricola Giorgio Pantano
- University of Maribor
- CET Electronics
- Terre Grosse
- Confagricultura Veneto
As experienced robotic end-users we coordinating the software development team that is coding the "brain" for the new machine.
For facilitating system integration with the crop the main feature available will be the possibility to execute vineyard spraying according to a predesignated path, obtained from end-user requirements. Furthermore, the robot will be able to assist the end-user with data coming from the field so the grape grower will know if a spraying intervention is necessary or not.
Finally, the application is designed with a so called "robot-home" where the robot can fill its water and fuel tanks giving the end-user avoidance from chemicals, ensuring his/her health on the long run.
