Farmers today need some assistance in the farm tasks, and they have to be able to work at the same time with robots and be safe around them or else the benefits of robotics are lost.
The safety of humans is crucial, therefore the robot has to be able to detect in all weather conditions at any height and canopy density the presence of humans around.
AgreenCulture developed agricultural robots that can turn on small and medium sized farms to assist the farmer in his daily tasks especially in viticulture.
The project of CEOL consists on having a robot with a technology that can detect humans in harsh climatic conditions.
Testing several technologies and protocols developed internally and by the COVR project committee will increase the safety of humans around the robot and break down the certification barrier.
