Bevillinger fra Det Strategiske Forskningsråd - ICT-AGRI: IKT og robotteknologi i landbruget

Formålet med ERA-nettet er at bidrage til en europæisk vidensbaseret bioøkonomi indenfor området ved at reducere fragmentering, fremme udveksling af viden på tværs af landegrænser og fremme brugen af ny teknologi til at effektivisere produktionen og mindske miljøpåvirkningen.

To projekter (nedenstående) har fået bevillinger fra Det Strategiske Forskningsråd i 2012 i ERA-nettet ICT-AGRI omhandlende Informations-, kommunikations- og robotteknologi i landbruget. Det totale bevilgede beløb til den danske del af disse projekter er på 2,58 mio. kroner.

Herunder ses mere informationer om de to forskningsprojekter.


Project title: Application of information technologies in Precision Apiculture (ITApic)
Project coordinator: Egils Stalidzans,(Latvia) Latvian University of Agriculture, Biosystems Group, Faculty of Information technology
Danish partner: Associate Professor Peter Ahrendt,
Aarhus University, Department of Electronics and Computer Engineering, Signal Processing and Control Group
Total funding: 688.950 €
DCSR funding: 198.200 €
Period: 2013-2016
Partners: Latvia (Latvian University of Agriculture, Biosystems Group, Faculty of Information technology), Turkey (Gaziosmanpasa University , Faculty of Science & Art, Department of Biology), Germany (University of Kassel, Faculty of Organic Agricultural Sciences, Department of Agricultural Engineering), Denmark (Aarhus University, Department of Electronics and Computer Engineering, Signal Processing and Control Group)

Resumé
This project proposes implementation of precision agriculture technologies and methods in the beekeeping. Precision agriculture approach is adapted for beekeeping based on the various measurements of individual bee colonies all year around thus detecting different states of colonies and apiaries enabling rapid reaction by the beekeeper in case of necessity. Digital measurements such as temperature, humidity, audio and video can be used to detect several states of a bee colony: swarming, broodless stage, brood rearing, illness. Lots of separated scientific research has been done with this techniques related to bee biology, but they have never been combined to develop a apicultural health observation and warning system.

Resumé
A number of technologies originating from ICT, has been successfully applied in agriculture. Nevertheless, sensor solutions have not been adopted into common agricultural practice. Two main gaps were identified, that this project is approaching to abridge:

  1. Reliability - systems with insufficient reliability for everyday use in harsh conditions, and limited robustness of calibrations.
  2. Usability - techniques were applied as isolated approaches without synergy of sensors’ data. In combination with the limited insight of the farmers with ICT, it limited their adoption.

USER proposes a conceptual framework and concrete applications for the farmer based on an innovative technical architecture, that demonstrates reliable Precision Agriculture solution. USER integrates canopy and fruit sensors with mobile vehicles and wireless sensor networks for providing spatial data for high value crops (vineyards and apple orchards). Solutions will be demonstrated to farmers and extension services.
