The RoboCrops event, scheduled for April 23-24, has been postponed. However, various online workshops will take place on April 24 on the theme of 'Robotics in the agricultural sector'.
Due to the multitude of events that will be postponed to the autumn, the organizers of the event have chosen to collaborate with the GreenTech and also organize a one-day meeting in World Horti Center on Friday October 23.
During the GreenTech in the RAI in Amsterdam (October 20-22), a Robotics themed area will be realized there. A substantial part of the tech programming of RoboCrops will take place there on Wednesday October 21.
More about the program at the GreenTech, in the World Horti Center and the hackathon in RoboHouse will follow soon.
Tickets already purchased are valid for the event on October 23. Participants who have already bought a ticket will be approached personally. If you have bought a two-day ticket, you will automatically receive a refund for one day. If you are not able to come on October 23, please contact email@example.com
Online workshops April 24
The workshops on Friday April 24 last two hours each and are organized together with TU Delft, RoboHouse and Wageningen UR. If you are interested in participating, please contact Liselotte.deVries@tudelft.nl and inform the organizers of your 1st and 2nd choice. The aim is to create joint project ideas.
The titles and times of the workshops are:
- 9:00-11:00 CET - Biomechanical Engineering: "A biologically inspired soft tactile robotic harvester for secure and gentle grip of vulnerable crops"
- 11:15-13:15 CET - Precision & Microsystems + Micro-electronics: “3D sensor networks and applications for autonomous, wireless sensor systems;
- 13:30-15:30 CET - Cognitive Robotics / Learning & Autonomous Control: “Flexible and reliable control for autonomous robot operation in agri / horti”
- 15:45-17:45 CET - Precision & Microsystems: "Design of hygienic and adaptive machines and robots through elastic mechatronics".
RoboCrops aims to create a movement to accelerate innovation in the greenhouse. This means that as an organization they work to build a platform in addition to the organization of the event, where growers, technical companies and other stakeholders can meet each other. They will publish a series of informative videos in the near future, the first of which can now be seen on their channel.
