AGRI-TECHNOLOGY - BIOECONOMY IN THE DIGITAL TRANSITION

CO- ORGANIZATION: TIF- HELEXPO, Institute for Bio-Economy and Agro-Technology, CERTH

Pavilion 11/stand 1


IBO | EKETA, is at the center of research and innovation in the field of agrotechnologies and sustainable rural development. In this direction, the Agrotica 2022 visitors will be able to watch the following activities:

RESEARCH IN AGRI-TECHNOLOGY AND BIOECONOMY


Research project results in the fields of agro-technology and the circular economy in agricultural production will be presented.

DIGITAL AGRICULTURE - FARMB


 
     
 

Presentation of iBO | CERTH’s spin-off company “farmB – digitizing agriculture” and demonstration of the innovative Digital Platform for agricultural production monitoring. Satellite data, weather station data, scanning sensor data, agricultural machinery data, as well as robotic vehicles and drone data, in a system for optimal decision making via Artificial Intelligence.

 

ROBOTICS IN AGRΟ-TECHNOLOGY AND BIO-ECONOMY


Demonstration of the Institute's robotic fleet and their capabilities.

Unmanned ground vehicles

 

Unmanned aerial vehicles

 

Live demonstration of optical sensors for plant condition detection and soil properties using multi-spectral and hyperspectral sensors.

 

Presentation of audio-visual material (field measurement videos and robotic system's basic functions), as well as printed material (brochures about the Institute's activities, posters and banners).

The Institute for Bio-Economy and Agri-Technology (iBO), is one of the five Institutes of the Centre for Research and Technology – Hellas (CERTH), a legal entity governed by private law with non-profit status, supervised by the General Secretariat for Research and Technology (GSRT) of the Greek Ministry of Development and Investments. iBO focuses on the scientific field of agri-technology and the broader scientific area of bio-systems engineering under the integration of multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary specializations and research units. At the same time, iBO's research priorities include rational environmental management and sustainability assessment of bio-production activities, and the optimisation of human interactions within these activities, all in the direction of adopting the principles of the circular economy.
