Title PANTHEON – Precision Farming of Hazelnut Orchards
Project ID 774571
Funding Agency European Commission
Call H2020-SFS-2017-1
Topic(s) SFS-05-2017 – Robotics Advances for Precision Farming
Funding Scheme RIA – Research and Innovation action
EU Funding EUR 3.144.452,50
Abstract
The goal of PANtHEOn is to develop the agricultural equivalent of an industrial Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) system to be used for the precision farming of large orchards of hazelnut. Our objective is to design an integrated system where unmanned robotics components move within the orchards to collect data and perform some of the most common farming operations. The information will be stored in a central unit that will integrate the data coming from the different robotic units to perform automatic feedback actions and to support the decisions of agronomists and farmers.

Title NECTAR – NEtworked Cooperative Teams of Autonomous Robots
Project ID RBFR08QWUV (Linea d’intervento 1)
Funding Agency Italian Ministry of University and Research
Call FIRB – Futuro in Ricerca 2008
Funding EUR 431.000,00
Abstract The NECTAR project is focused on control issues for networked robotic systems. In particular, the NECTAR project wants to investigate and develop innovative techniques for the control of networked and cooperative robotic systems, i.e., teams of autonomous vehicles that, in order to achieve a common goal, cooperate by exchanging information via a wireless communication. The project activities will be focused on the development of motion control techniques for a team of mobile robots that has to carry out coordinated missions both in an environment lacking of a communication infrastructure (or sensor network) and in an environment where these infrastructure are available.
