Winetech

WORKSHOP: New and Emerging Technologies for your Vineyard

Convenors: Dr Sigfredo Fuentes and Dr Roberta De Bei

Many people think that the ‘I, Robot’ vision from Isaac Asimov is not too far away from reality.

We have seen everyday more and more media coverage of the use of drones and robotic

technology for research in viticulture and agriculture in general. Automated systems can carry

instrumentation that enables the acquisition and analysis of data using contact, short and

long range remote sensing techniques. This workshop will explore the state of the art of

instrumentation and research to implement these systems in viticulture and winemaking.

Some of the technologies and instrumentation that will be covered range in applications from

the field to the cellar. The structure of this workshop will be in the soil – plant – atmosphere

context.

COST: AUD$ 150
