The Intervitis Interfructa Hortitechnica is just around the corner

INTERVITIS INTERFRUCTA HORTITECHNICA will open its doors next Sunday. The international technology trade fair for producers, processors and marketers of wine, fruit juice and special crops will present the latest trends and innovations in the key areas of cultivation and harvesting technology, filling and packaging technology, processing and process control as well as organisation and marketing on more than 50,000 m². From 04.11. to 06.11. visitors can get an excellent overview of the entire process chain in Halls 4, 6, 8 and 10 at the Stuttgart Exhibition Centre.

Of course Robot Makers GmbH also uses this platform to present the RowCropPilot to a broad specialist audience during the robot demonstration. The RowCropPilot is an autonomy kit, which can be used on different vehicles. It enables the (partially) autonomous performance of recurring maintenance tasks in the field of viticulture and fruit growing as well as in tree nurseries. In addition to the robot demonstration, we will also be represented with a small booth at the fair to discuss further optimization potentials for the system in direct contact with the users.

Demonstration at the SICK Global Mobile Automation Meeting 2018

As part of this year’s SICK Global Mobile Automation Meeting 2018, we presented our high-performance control technology and our strengths in environment recognition using the RowCropPilot autonomy kit as an example. The event took place between 26 September and 28 September in Freiburg (Breisgau). The RowCropPilot is an innovative control system for the automation of recurring maintenance tasks in special crops such as viticulture, fruit growing or tree nurseries. The control system was presented in a real application scenario in viticulture. The basic vehicle used was an electrically driven tracked vehicle of type Aebi EC130, that was able to carry out the mulching work in the vineyard independently by retrofitting the RowCropPilot.

RowCropPilot on Tour – 25th farmers market Bad Kreuznach

Already on 15 September we presented our RowCropPilot at the 25thfamers market in Bad Kreuznach. In addition to the more than 100 booths of regional exhibitors on the grounds of the Service Centre Rural Area Rheinhessen-Nahe-Hunsrück, the anniversary year 2018 also focused on the viticulture of the future. In the context of this technical show, our autonomy kit RowCropPilot was shown in action that (partially) autonomous working in vineyards is possible.
