Research & Development

TRITON aspires to develop a system that will enable autonomous drone operations targeting activities taking place in a port. This project opens up brand new value propositions wholly unrelated to the way drone technology is currently being utilized in the maritime domain. The most important step forward in the TRITON project relies on the fact that the drones will autonomously navigate, and more importantly, automatically recognise moving obstacles in the port’s airspace in order to reconfigure their flight paths to avoid midair collisions.

Oenobotics services rely on the Oenobotics drone platform and consists of:

▶ Disease and water-stress diagnostics
▶ Precise spot- spraying for treatment of downy mildew, powdery mildew and grey mold/botrytis early diagnostics.
▶ Wireless drone changing through a smart charging dock.

Oenobotics services are delivered to customers, such as vineyard farmers or associations, through a hardware-as-a-service business tool, supporting them to avoid significant initial investment costs.
