The GRAPE project (Ground Robot for vineyArd monitoring and ProtEction) aims at creating the enabling technologies to allow agricultural service companies and equipment providers to increase the cost effectiveness of their products with respect to traditional practices. In particular, the project addresses the market of instruments for biological control by developing the tools required to execute (semi) autonomous vineyard monitoring and farming tasks with Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) and, therefore, reducing the environmental impact with respect to traditional chemical control.
