LitterBot is a commercial agribot system to monitor and physically manage poultry litter through management actions like litter aeration and spraying neutralising agents. This
project adapts and evolves our existing in-shed feasibility ‘ammonia-sniffing’ agribot called FLOX-bot built on the open-source, award-winning Leo Rover (previously Turtle
Rover) into a robotic litter cleaning system that will be piloted in live, commercial poultry sheds during this AgROBOfood project.
It combines these litter management abilities with a litter quality algorithm (LQ-AI) built on top of our existing ‘NetFLOX’ machine-vision algorithms to detect and localise litter requiring management in the shed while avoiding disturbing the birds. The system knows where the robot has to go to improve litter quality, and will take appropriate cleaning actions while using on-board sensors to capture ammonia levels in the
relevant areas – creating a virtuous feedback loop to better understand and manage
agROBOfood builds the European ecosystem for the effective adoption of robotics technologies in the European agri-food sector and accelerates the digital transformation to make the European agri-food sector more efficient and competitive.
This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement Nº 825395.
