Vol.4 – Agricultural Robotics

Europe is the world leader in cow-milking robots. Agriculture has already undergone its mechanical “revolution”. Robotics technologies are used differently depending on the size of the farm. For larger operations, tractors and other mobile devices are becoming autonomous, while drones monitor crops and can also be used to spread fertilizers.

At smaller farms, the work is transforming into “precision agriculture” with small autonomous robots that roam through the fields and, after distinguishing the weeds from the harmless plants and the ripe fruits from the unripe ones, spring into action with great precision. The robots pull out the weeds and pick the ripe fruits but, most importantly, do not touch what shouldn’t be touched. Interestingly, several initiatives aim to develop robotized crop and livestock farming for ecological purposes. Thus, Dino from Naïo Technologies is a weeding robot that straddles vegetable beds to mechanically weed large-scale vegetable farms, it is designed to weed industrial crops autonomously and without human supervision thanks to its guiding mechanism and its weeding and hoeing tools. It is electrically driven and requires less energy than a tractor, also lighter, it avoids compacting you soil, even when used frequently. Guided thanks to RTK GPS, you only need to enter the cartography of your field and when the robot finishes work, you will receive a text message on your smartphone.

Robotizing permaculture, i.e. natural, sustainable and self-sufficient growing systems, could help to foster its use at a broader scale.

Booth: Q22

 

Company

Flylab, the first fablab in France focusing on drone since 2013, developed since 2016 the 1st modular platform and open source of robotic integration and IA, as is Android for phones.

In our view, rolling, flying robotics combined with IoT and AI will facilitate the reduction of risks and costs in the many activities related to:

  • Collect and processing of data: inspection, monitoring, mapping, inventory, supervision, etc.
  • Transport of objects or persons
  • Robotic actions: cleaning, maintenance, etc …

In this digital transformation, these technologies could be new tools, a new branch of enterprise ERP.

Application market: Medical & Health

Booth: R16

 

Company

TWIICE is a modular lower limb exoskeleton for walking assistance that allows paraplegics to regain independence in their daily activities: sitting and standing, walking on regular, rough or tilted surfaces, climbing stairs or interacting in community.

Our intention is trying to give back users part of the sensations associated with walking or standing. Every disability being unique, one single exoskeleton alone cannot fulfill all expectations. Hence the need for a modular and customizable device. With a weight of 15 kilos and a battery enabling 3 hours of active walking, TWIICE is designed to handle different pathologies, morphologies and user experiences. The whole technical design is developed with a special emphasis on simplicity, which confers robustness, reliability and lightness to the device.

TWIICE is a spin-off from the Laboratoire de Systèmes Robotique at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). The team is multidisciplinary and consists of 3 PhD students and 2 engineers.

“MUBO” stands for Musing Coding Robot, and it can turn music into digital codes.
In addition to music, it can control its 7 servo-motors to turn motions into codes, and a song and motions (dance) of your own creation will be translated into the movements of the robots hardware and the sound from its speakers.
Using this feature, the robot could be used for coding education in elementary schools, and the robot could also be used for education and as a toy at home also, using the remote-use application that has various functions such as voice detection, human recognition, color detection, and sensors. It is a small smart robot that is like a friend to children.
The robot has a cute design and a variety of facial expressions that children like, and it is a biped walking robot, using the 4 servo-motors in its legs and a total of 7 servomotors.
Robot is controlled through a smartphone, which is connected with the robot via Bluetooth technology and docking on the robots face.
