Researchers from the Polytechnic University of Madrid participate in a European project to improve the production of organic crops thanks to the development of an intelligent robotic system A team of researchers from the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM), made up of the Robotics and Cybernetics groups (ROBCIB) of the Center for Automation and Robotics (CAR CSIC-UPM) and the LPF-TAGRALIA research group of the ETSIAAB-UPM , has developed a robotic system specialized in the individualized fertilization of each plant of heterogeneous row crops. This has been possible thanks to vegetative analysis carried out using a modern sensory system based on laser measurements and multispectral images. The results are very promising and will serve to optimize the use of fertilizers and thus minimize the environmental impact of crops. The SureVeg project (Strip-cropping and recycling of waste for biodiverse and resoURce-Efficient intensive VEGetable production) for its acronym in English, is ...
