Smart Droplets robotic (physical) assets – a retrofit tractor and sprayer – are integrated seamlessly with the intelligent components – Digital Platform and Digital Twins – for collecting field data and allowing for real time spraying task execution.
Smart Droplets’ main objective is to advance both hardware and software capabilities during chemical applications for resource optimisation and minimisation of chemical waste. To accomplish this vision, this project will use already existing technologies (>TRL 7) developed within but not limited to the agricultural industry. Its ultimate aspiration is to deliver a complete system capable of translating large amounts of data from the field into meaningful information and impactful spraying commands to achieve the Green Deal goals.
SMART DROPLETS WILL CONDUCT TWO PILOTS, IN TWO DIVERSIFIED AND COMPLEMENTARY ENVIRONMENTS TO EVALUATE AND TEST ITS COMPONENTS AS THOROUGHLY AS POSSIBLE
