Project abstract

The application of robotics in agriculture is part of the recent trends of automating the tasks and the activities of people, which are characterized by increased physical effort. Recent robotics trends are also including automation of processes that can be harmful to human health. On the other hand, cooperation and coordination are modern concepts in the development of robotics systems which include information exchange between the robots regarding their condition and their measurements and coordinated planning of their activities. This project aims at development of techniques for cooperative localization and mapping that will be directed towards research in the fields of computer vision, near infrared imaging and sensor fusion.
