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

First VOF workshop: A success!

Posted: May 4, 2013 by vineyardofthefuture in About the project, News, Seminar presentation

The first workshop from the VOF – International was a success. Among the attendants were managers of important vineyard companies from Chile, professionals, academics and students. The workshop was held at the Faculty of Agronomy Sciences belonging to the University of Talca in Chile and organised by CITRA (Integrated Centre fro Transference on Irrigation and Agroclimatology).

In that opportunity, a  fly demonstration was performed with the newly acquired Octocopter from the VOF – Chile.
