This project aims to connect 2 sectors. On the one hand, the Flemish fruit sector, with apple and pear growers as specific target group, has particular needs concerning the integration of innovative technologies in fruit growing. The ever-increasing labor costs and the constantly decreasing amount of skilled seasonal workers puts great pressure on the fruit sector. Therefore, at the other hand, automation of the different activities in the orchard plays an essential role in keeping this sector profitable.
