Recent trends and mechatronic solutions for a mechanised forestry.
workshop supported by the Spruce-Robot project
Date 01 Jun 2022 14:00 - 18:00Location NOI Techpark, Seminarroom 1
This workshop has therefore the aim of bringing together experts from academia and industry, all researching about and working with robotic equipment and machinery to be used to perform forest operations. Specifically, invited speakers will present some studies concerning the mechanization of log-harvesting, the development of equipment for forest tending and timber harvesting, all making use of many recent technologies. Among the several topics, the following will be illustrated: hybrid and electric drivetrains, Industry-4.0 solutions to gather detailed data of forest stands, including the use of drones.
