By Jennifer Chu | Sep 1, 2017 @ 13:11 | MIT News| Approach may enable robots to move around hospitals, malls, and other areas with heavy foot traffic. Just as drivers observe the rules of the road, most pedestrians follow certain social codes when navigating a hallway or a crowded thoroughfare: Keep to the right, pass […]

A Wheeled VineRobot to Monitor Grape Growth

A Wheeled VineRobot to Monitor Grape Growth

Aug 10, 2017 @ 18:15 | Just like great wine needs time, great grapes require continuous attention and reliable assessment tools. Noting the absence of a convincing alternative to manual sampling and analysis, an EU-funded consortium has developed VineRobot, an ‘Unmanned ground vehicle’ (UGV) equipped with non-invasive sensor technology. Today, assessing the readiness of vine […]
