The first test of autonomous navigation in a vineyard was successful

Androver II successfully passed the first test of autonomous navigation in a vineyard. The robot uses a 2D laser scanner for its movement, with which it detects rows of vines. Thanks to our algorithm with artificial intelligence elements, Androver II also managed the movement from row to row.

In and between the rows

RoboTech Vision continues to develop autonomous navigation algorithms. After the company managed to develop software thanks to which the robotic platform Husky A200 recognizes objects and follows them, it also focused on the vineyard. For this purpose, it chose its own robotic platform Androver II which differs from Husky A200 in the Double Ackerman chassis.

The robot dealt with more demanding terrain. Despite the fallen leaves in the vineyard, it detected the rows and moved autonomously not only in them, but also passed from row to row. It did it with the help of a 2D laser scanner and our algorithm. The goal is to improve navigation using a 3D laser scanner. The robot could thus autonomously mow the grass or cultivate the soil around the roots.
