WP1 will determine the technical requirements—agronomical and physiological, sensor fusion and modelling, and data management and display—needed for the multi-sensor scouting robot to run efficiently. Requirements will be obtained from RTDs, SMEs and end-users.
In this WP, the integration of several non-invasive sensing technologies (chlorophyll-based fluorescence, RGB machine vision, IR thermography) and navigation (GPS) techniques into the scouting robot will be carried out to obtain large amounts of agronomical and physiological data from the vineyard.
WP3 involves the development of algorithms, calibration curves and models that process information acquired by the multi-sensor system of the scouting robot. The system will integrate and fuse data coming from agronomical and physiological sources captured by the VineRobot.
WP4 addresses the processing, transmission, display and storage of all the data generated through the UGV’s multisensory system for their further implementation in the VineRobot.
WP5 deals with disseminating project results to (technician and advisor) communities involved in grapevine management, to growers, wineries, retailers and consumers. Both traditional and innovative information technologies will be used for public outreach.
WP6 is led by UDLR and involves the participation of all partners. Objectives are targeted to:
