ResumenThe availability of new technology — global positioning systems (GPS), geographic information systems (GIS), sensors, the automation of agricultural machinery, and high resolution image sensing — has made possible the precise management of agricultural farms. Consequently, the concept of Precision Agriculture has developed as a management strategy that uses information technology to collect and process data from multiple sources to facilitate decisions associated with crop production. The Seventh Framework Programme project RHEA “Robot Fleets for Highly Effective Agricultural and Forestry Management” (FP7-NMP N. 245986) has focused its activity on the design, development, and testing of a new generation of automatic and robotic systems for both chemical and physical –mechanical and thermal– effective weed management for agriculture and forestry, covering a large variety of European products, including agriculture wide row crops, close row crops and woody perennials. RHEA has aimed at diminishing the use of agricultural and forestry chemical inputs by improving crop quality and health and safety for humans and by reducing production costs by means of a sustainable crop management using a fleet of heterogeneous robots –ground and aerial– equipped with advanced perception systems, enhanced end-effectors and improved decision control algorithms. As a part of the project activities, the RHEA consortium has organized two international conferences to disseminate the project results as well as to obtain inputs from other interested researchers, engineers, students and practitioners. The First International Conference on Robotics and associated High-technologies and Equipment for Agriculture (RHEA-2012) was held in Pisa, Italy on September 19-21, 2012 and was devoted to the applications of automated systems and robotics for crop protection in sustainable precision agriculture. Now, we introduce the Proceedings of the Second International Conference on Robotics and associated High-technologies and Equipment for Agriculture and forestry (RHEA-2014), to be held in Madrid, Spain, on May 22-23, 2014, and are dedicated to new trends in mobile robotics, perception and actuation for both agriculture and forestry. This conference takes place after the final demonstration of the RHEA project devoted to present the experimental RHEA project results to the Precision Agriculture community. Therefore, the conference brings the attendees the opportunity to discuss the RHEA project outcomes and to compare them with results achieved recently by other colleagues.
DescripciónThese RHEA-2014 proceedings, therefore, put together all of the papers presented and discussed at the conference.
