Winner of organic agriculture and agroecology thesis award: student develops robot for labor-intensive tasks on small-scale farms together with farmers

UGent student Rembrandt Perneel won, with the development of a (semi) autonomous, modular robotic platform that can be used for weed control on small-scale farms and thus play a supporting role in performing labor-intensive tasks.

Energie en water bij robotmelken

Zo zal het basisverbruik van de melkrobot (bv. de driemaal daagse hoofdreiniging) onveranderd blijven, ongeacht de melkproductie. Door de efficiƫntie van de melkrobot te verhogen, dalen de energiekosten per liter. Hierbij telt vooral de totale melkproductie en het aantal melkingen en niet de bezettingsgraad van de robot.
