Date: 2017/11/23

Inkoa is involved in the GreenPatrol Project, an initiative funded by the H2020, the European Union Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, coordinated by the CTC, Technological Centre of Components. The project has been approved within the call H2020-GALILEO-GSA-2017-3 of the GSA (European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency), and it counts with the participation of 6 European companies and research centres.

The project aims at developing an autonomous navigation system for the integrated management of pests in greenhouses. The "GreenPatrol" navigation system (Galileo Enhanced Solution for Pest Detection and Control in Greenhouse Fields with Autonomous Service Robots) is based on the use of the EGNSS signals of Galileo- Europe’s Global Satellite Navigation System and the development of new software for integration of data from different sensors.

This project will allow, through the application of Robotics in the greenhouses, the controlled management of pests from the moment they are detected in crops, increasing the productivity and profitability in intensive agriculture at the time that the use of pesticides is minimised.
