Researchers from INESC TEC resort to light spectrum to assess the ripeness of grapes in the Douro region

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.
