While farming today requires a large investment in machinery, it generates relatively low revenue; and accommodating ecology demands asks farmers to invest more time and take more risk. Using robotics could help farmers with low value-added, time-consuming work, reducing costs and helping mitigate risk.
Every different crop and activity could have its own dedicated robot and process, but that would make the price of the final product expensive. The challenge is to cover the most number of crops and activities through a common platform, thus making farming ecology affordable.
Several different ecological farming robots using a powerful, common multi-task core system.
Farming tools for soil preparation, seeding or weeding have been manufactured for years by several leading companies across the world.
They cover hardware conception, industrialization, sale and maintenance; but they remain highly focused on traditional activities, so they refrain from doing something that disrupts the market.
Robotics offers a relevant solution for transforming to costly farming ecology into affordable alternatives. AgreenCulture supports all farm machinery companies to change a passive farming tool into a smart robot capable of agroecology with low financial risk.
The company offers a proprietary, highly accurate (2 mm accuracy) GNSS-RTK system that enables any robot to function safely and with a high level of integrity during operations.
AgreenCulture also offers a positioning guidance AI connectivity-cloud access box that is installed on all new robots sold by its industrial and commercial partners.
All robot developments for new farm machinery by our industrial partners start with a one-year Proof Of Concept. Testing in the market identifies technical difficulties, making our partners more confident to make bigger investments towards industrialization.
GOAL 2: ZERO HUNGER
Investments in agriculture are crucial to increasing the capacity for agricultural productivity and sustainable food production systems are necessary to help alleviate the perils of hunger. AgreenCulture are the closest possible to the farmer's needs and reduce cost by limiting inputs and achieve a more responsible and sustainable agriculture
The 3DEXPERIENCE® platform enables AgreenCulture to make new development ultra-efficient by using a common set of requirements and specifications.
Using 3DEXPERIENCE® modelling and simulation allows the team to work faster from original idea to final product.
AgreenCulture intends to always respect
- Farmers (in offering a relevant solution for agroecology)
- Environment (in preserving with robots soil, air and water when running farming activity)
- Consumers (in proposing healthy production for all)
The construction industry needs a digital revolution. Even though it is the world´s biggest employer, the industry has been posting profitability losses for over three decades.
Marine energies are emerging, being a credible alternative to electricity generation from carbon sources.
In 2017, the market of professional drones is projected to increase to 3,7 billion of euros (Gartner source). Services associated to drones grow up and the autonomy of the machines is optimized. From design offices to operating departments, what are the appropriate devices for collecting data?
Urbanisation, Digital Transformation, Climate Change are the key challenges now. On Transportation and Mobility, the current paradigm is : one size fits for all. At XYT, we do not sell cars, we deliver tailored mobility solutions for our clients’ business operations, to maximize value creation in a better future.
The satellite market has been disrupted by the miniaturization of the technology. Lots of small satellites have been created and they aim to provide data for Earth observation, surveillance, telecommunications, smart cities, connectivity, meteorology, emergency responses, ...
According to the World Health Organization, 75 million of people need a wheelchairs in the world. But the common wheelchair is an obsolete technology. Many situations, both professional and personal, call for an adapted system:
Earth is warming up, natural disasters are more frequent and imminent and destructive, and citizens of the world are slowly but steadily inching towards a new found reality about investing in the well-being of their future generations to come. The renewable energy share of total final energy consumption gradually increased from 16.6 per cent in 2010 to 17.5 per cent in 2016.
