Il progetto #LTIS ( Localization and Tracking with inertial sensors for agri-food applications ) proposto da Winet Srl all’interno del bando Europeo EuroCPS è stato approvato.
Lo scopo del progetto è riassunto in questa breve nota:
“Winet Srl aims to employ the #EuroCPS platform #iNemo to enhance the wireless network solution currently proposed to its customers by introducing a new type of mobile node, named #LTIS, equipped with inertial sensing capabilities. The new device can be suitable to different market scenarios. One of these considers to monitor and optimize different tasks in agri-food production, including the localization of fruit bins, farming vehicles, cattle and people, as well as the estimation of their trajectories across limited working areas (e.g. fields, farms or warehouses). The proposed system will constitute a useful tool to support decisions and control a variety of agricultural activities, such as fruit/vegetable collection, product quality monitoring and, in general, all aspects of agri-food storage and logistics. The new LTIS node will exhibit a very high-energy efficiency, obtained through the integration of dedicated algorithms, and will provide accurate position information in both outdoor and indoor environments. For these reasons, the use of LTIS inertial navigation systems is preferred to more traditional satellite-based solutions that are not particularly suitable to indoor applications. “
