Research Projects

  1. SHOP4CF, Smart Human Oriented Platform for Connected Factories, aims to find the right balance between cost-effective automation, repetitive tasks and involve the human workers in areas such as adaptability, creativity and agility where they create the biggest added value. Also to pursue the highly-connected factory model to reap the benefits of all the data generated within the factory.
  2. Rovitis 4.0 R&D Project aims to advance the state-of-the-art in agricultural robotics, focusing on the technical challenges related to the autonomous driving in grapevines, to significantly contribute to the agriculture market and, more specifically, to viticulture.
