The project involves the acquisition and processing of the following surveys:
The project comprises six different phases:
An in-depth study on methodologies and techniques aimed to determine all possible crop diseases by using aerial and proximity surveys.
Namely a robot and an aircraft with different load capacities and flight autonomy.
With graphical prescription maps.
Which enables the testing of the AGRIMET prototype.
Which provides for the verification of data both consolidated and non-consolidated and made available to operators.
Which includes the dissemination of data resulting from research and development in the various forms of communication envisaged.
The proposed investment contributes to technological development, improved access to information and communication technologies, and the introduction of technological innovations in companies operating in strategic areas of the Sicilian agro-industrial system.
