More information

A robot that can determine the ripeness of cucumbers. Or a drone that detects the quality of vineyards. These are just two examples of the implementation of robotics in agriculture. There are many more technological innovations possible by combining the two worlds of robotics and agriculture. As a result, the programme agROBOfood was launched to create a network that shows all the opportunities robotics has to offer in this area of expertise and stimulate innovations.
