The TrimBot2020 consortium was hosted at the International Conference on Applications of Intelligent Systems (APPIS) in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain.
Members of our consortium (RuG) carried out some experiments, last December, in the test garden in Wageningen for camera localization using fiducial markers.
On 27-29 September 2017, we met in Renningen at the Bosch Campus to discuss the advancements of our work. Here some shots of the three days.
The TrimBot2020 project was mentioned in an article on Horizon: the EU Research & Innovation magazine. Here an extract of the article, which you can read here. “It’s a similar story for the robotic hedge trimmer being developed by a separate group of researchers. All the farmer or groundskeeper needs to do is mark which hedge needs trimming. ‘The user will sketch the garden, though not too accurately,’ said Bob Fisher, computer vision scientist at Edinburgh University, UK, and coordinator…
The data set for the 3D reconstruction challenge of the TrimBot 3DRMS workshop at ICCV2017 is available for download at the url https://gitlab.inf.ed.ac.uk/3DRMS/Challenge2017. Please find more information about the workshop here.
On August 31st and September 1st, we gathered at the University of Edinburgh to discuss the progress of the research work and to plan further activities.
The University of Groningen (RuG) hosted the two-days (9-10 May) meeting of the EU H2020 TrimBot project with 25 participants.
