Published in 4/6/2014
Expoforest, held from the 21st to 23rd May 2014, in São Paulo, Brazil , is a forestry trade fair focused on machinery, equipment, supplies and technology focused on the production of wood from planted forests and, in particular, eucalyptus.
GeoAtributo, the current coordinator of the LUNA project in which CESAM participates, is present at the Fair, focusing on the innovative scheme developed within this project.
The LUNA (ALow-flying UNmanned Aerial forest monitoring system) is an information system, fed by various sources using different types of sensors equipped on unmanned aerial vehicles, which allow obtaining accurate, dynamic and relevant information monitoring plant growth, pests and diseases, emergence of invasive species, as well as the occurrence of early mortality of trees. This system is under development, involving research institutions and private companies, with a strong emphasis on scientific development and innovation .
