Setting up WatchPlant experiments in Barcelona

Marko Križmančić was visiting Spain from 8th to 11th May 2023 , where he participated in setting up air quality sampling experiments for the WatchPlant project . The project partners from CSIC-IRNAS and CSIC-IDAEA placed tomato and ivy plants in three different air quality measuring stations located in Barcelona and Vic . These locations were selected specifically to monitor background pollution in suburban, urban, and high-traffic density areas. In a couple of months, the responses collected from plants in the experiment will be matched with data from air quality stations to create more precise models for future bio-hybrid sensors.

Final experiments of HEKTOR project conducted

The HEKTOR project recently reached an important milestone with the completion of the final experiments. The project focused on developing algorithms for autonomous robotic tasks in agriculture and mariculture, and the focus of the latest experiments was on the autonomous suckering and spraying in vineyards located on meliorated karst terrain. Meliorated karst, characterized by distinctive limestone and dolomite rocks, presents a major challenge for agricultural activities. The in situ testing phase of the project included a series of rigorous trials to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of the developed algorithms. These tests provided valuable insights into the real-world performance of the autonomous robotic systems and allowed the team to identify potential areas for improvement and optimization.
