Cultivating robotics and AI for sustainable farming

Agriculture is susceptible to the cost and scarcity of labour, and making cultivation practices more efficient and sustainable is critical. EU-funded ROBS4CROPS is a vital catalyst in accelerating high-tech robotics and automated technologies in the European food and farm industry. Building upon the existing agricultural machinery, standards, and best practices, the 4-year project will shape and deliver a flexible and modular, fully autonomous system ready for large-scale commercial trials. The trials will be conducted in partnership with commercial farms and business leaders from France, Greece, Spain, and the Netherlands. ROBS4CROPS will significantly reduce farmers’ dependency on hired labour, increase safety, reduce the use of inputs and the overall carbon footprint of food production.

rOBS4cROPS by numbers

  • 16 partners, 7 countries
  • 4 pilots
  • 50 – 80 % reduction of pesticide/herbicide use
  • 2000 stakeholders reached through pilots

  • <500 people following educational activities 

Our role in the project

In ROBS4CROPS, the main role of FSH is communication, dissemination and exploitation. FSH is leading WP8 and ensuring that the technical outcomes of the project result in business for the SME’s involved as well as for the other consortium partners. FSH will provide the project with business and exploitation plans that will help the ecosystem in adaptation of autonomous robotics solutions.
