Glas 4.0

Members of producer associations DOOR, Harvest House, Best of Four and Van Nature have joined forces for the GLAS4.0-program. This program focuses on how disruptive technologies their application can be made available for cucumber, eggplant, pepper and tomato crops. 

 

Glas 4.0 Accelerator Workshop

 Based on the results of this program so far, it can be concluded that crop sensing and robotics are important disruptive technologies for the future of fruiting vegetables. Development is happening on a global scale. So where can Dutch growers and grower associations help to speed up this process? 

To answer this and many other questions, Glas 4.0 will organise an acceleration workshop in which people from universities and corporations will join forces with innovative growers. The workshop takes place 11 and 12 September 2017.  

Developments in practice

Oogstrobot komkommers (De Ingenieur, juli 2017) 
Crux Agribotics heeft binnenkort een primeur met 's werelds eerste volautomatische oogstrobot voor kaskomkommers. Een doorbraak, want het robotkarretje van de Brabantse start-up plukt óók de exemplaren die diep verstopt zitten tussen de bladeren. Lees meer.

Program

With a two day-program, the workshop aims to bring together knowledge gathered in business and research on the use of crop sensing and robotics in fruiting vegetables in the greenhouse.

After collecting this knowledge, participants will discuss how growers and producer associations can speed up the process of making disrupting technologies available for tomato, eggplant, cucumber and pepper.
