NI: Natural Intelligence for Robotic Monitoring of Habitats
You are here
Global warming and pollution pose significant threats to the environment. Most of the policies put forward aim to restore and preserve ecosystems by increasing the coverage of protected biodiversity-rich land and sea areas, building on the Natura 2000 network. The EU-funded NI project aims to serve the European Green Deal via monitoring the natural habitats belonging to the network with robots able to effectively move in dunes, grasslands, forests and alpine terrains. The robots will be empowered by natural intelligence and will leverage the fusion of artificial cognition and articulated soft-robotics bodies.
