Do you have a vegetable garden for self-sufficiency? Is it complicated to go there sometimes, to check on the condition of your vegetables? Leandro Rodrigues, a researcher at INESC TEC, developed a technology to help producers monitor the growth rate of their crops. This robotic prototype earned him a place among the winners of the 2022 edition of the Fraunhofer Portugal Challenge.

The Centre for Robotics in Industry and Intelligent Systems (CRIIS) and the Centre for Applied Photonics (CAP) at INESC TEC will develop an automatic platform to integrate robotic-assisted intelligent photonics sensors, with artificial intelligence and systems biology.
10th January 2022
The first demonstration event of the European project SCORPION – focusing on the development of autonomous robots to spray mountain vineyards, without wasting chemicals, and with environmental and economic benefits - took place this month, at INESC TEC and at Quinta do Seixo (Pinhão)-
29th November 2021
Researchers from the Centre for Applied Photonics (CAP) and the Centre for Robotics in Industry and Intelligent System (CRIIS) developed a mobile platform dedicated to the metabolic monitoring in precision viticulture. The solution integrates advanced sensors using light to measure the organic changes that occur in the plant, in order to ensure the harvest's high quality. This is the first technology of its kind in the world, and is being tested in the Douro region, at Quinta do Seixo and Quinta dos Aciprestes.
