This AI4EU Café presents Daniel Calvo Alonso (Head of AI, Data & Robotics Unit at Atos Research and Innovation – FlexiGroBots Project Coordinator)

Description of his talk:

The adoption of novel technologies by the agriculture sector has increased in the past years, unleashing a new paradigm – Agriculture 4.0. Within it, robotics, AI, automation, and other novel technologies play a major role in crop production and precision agriculture operations, optimising resources based on relevant data. Nevertheless, there is a gap between the installed and the real performance of different types of robots used for specific tasks. FlexiGroBots is an H2020 project addressing the growing market needs for new robotic technologies and their adoption by ensuring efficient automation of precision agriculture operations and flexible use of multi-robot systems, including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs), which will be demonstrated on three real-life pilots on grapevines (Spain), rapeseeds (Finland), and blueberries (Lithuania and Serbia). Join us at this interesting Café where you will be able to know more about FlexiGroBots motivation, objectives and its innovative platform which integrates and leverages existing technology platforms and components, digital transformation initiatives and ecosystems, and reference models and standards.
