Atos coordinates European project FlexiGroBots to foster the use of robotics in agriculture

Paris, France and Madrid, Spain – April eight, 2021,

Atos now announces that it is coordinating and actively contributing to the European project “FlexiGroBots”. This initiative aims to empower robot-makers, engineers and service vendors to develop and deploy multi-robot devicesfor the agri-food stuff marketplace to help farmers in their day by day operate. Within just the framework of the Horizon 2020 program, the project will produce an progressive platform to facilitate the use of robotics as a result of 3 large-scale pilots throughout Europe.

The adoption of new technologies in the agricultural sector has elevated in recent many years, unleashing a new paradigm: “agriculture 4.” wherever robotics, AI and automation engage in a essential purpose in crop administration and precision agriculture[one] by addressing authentic-time determination producing and checking wants. Having said that, present-day robotic devices are missing flexibility as they are built to carry out pretty particular missions and are not ready to take care of other tasks nor cooperate with other robotic technologies, foremost to a deficiency of ROI for farmers.

The FlexiGroBots project will run more than 36 months with the intention of developing and validating an open up platform which supports the development of versatile and heterogeneous multi-robot devices that help multi-robot cooperation and autonomy. Robots include UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) and UGVs (unmanned floor vehicles).

Within just FlexiGroBots, the Atos exploration and innovation group functions as the project coordinator, guaranteeing the execution of the planned routines and the in general checking and supervision of the project. Atos will help provide the architecture and necessity analysis, lead the reference architecture and synchronize the 3 pilots. It functions as a specialized leader and principal contributor in the enhancement of robotic mission command middle abilities for the layout, planning and supervision of heterogeneous multi-robot operations, like robotic products and services enabled by Computer system Eyesight tactics and in geospatial details analysis. As a member of the Intercontinental Knowledge Space Association (IDSA), Atos also performs on the enhancement of details space enablers for the details administration of an industrial details space personalized to the agricultural context, allowing for safe details trade throughout numerous stakeholders within the agri-food stuff sector.

This project matches flawlessly with Atos’ aim to lead to the digitization of European industries, like agriculture, as a result of the enhancement of progressive programs and products and services primarily based on AI, details and reliable robotics”, opinions Daniel Calvo Alonso, Head of the ‘AI, Knowledge and Robotics’ Unit in the Atos Research and Innovation department and coordinator of the FlexiGroBots project.

The FlexiGroBots platform will be validated in 3 authentic pilot tasks:

  • Vineyards (Spain): Demonstrate the superior capacity and versatility of robots to complete unique tasks in vineyards, contributing to the top quality of grapes for wine generation and to in general economic profitability.
  • Rapeseed fields (Finland): Demonstrate time-significant pest administration and robotization of hefty machinery fleets in grassland administration.
  • Blueberries fields (Serbia and Lithuania): Demonstrate the probable of progressive robotic remedies – with sophisticated remote sensing tactics, deep understanding and determination help – to grow blueberries.

Funded by the European Commission with seven million euros, FlexiGroBots provides alongside one another a multidisciplinary consortium produced up of sixteen unique companies and corporations from eight unique nations. For additional data, take a look at https://flexigrobots-h2020.eu/
