Internet Festival 2022: qbrobotics shows an application in Agritech sector


qbrobotics participated in the session of the Internet Festival entitled “From the Radio in Galena to the 5G network” and, together with the telecommunications networks group of the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Pisa, contributed to an international action by IEEE Communication Society in the Pre-University area called TRYENGINEERING.ORG, where the opportunity was taken to show the developments of telecommunications which exactly in Pisa, starting from Guglielmo Marconi in Coltano and then at the first connection to Arpanet, come to the developments of the 5G network and, more recently, of the 6G network.

qbrobotics and the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Pisa, in particular, showed an application of collaborative robotics in the AGRITECH sector on hydroponic automated greenhouses.
The 5G network was presented as a platform enabling new services, where there is a concrete opportunity in the development in terms of innovation of the territory, in close collaboration with the University of Pisa also in the context of the developments of the “Centro Nazionale Agritech” program (financed in Italy for over 350 million euros from the PNRR).

The participants in the event (6 classes from 3 different schools) also created the same “galena crystal radio” thanks to the contribution of ELFI Electronics, understanding the radical change that the network is undergoing thanks to emerging technologies such as 5G and 6G.
