STRATOS - open System for TRAcTOrs’ autonomouS Operations

The main objective of the STRATOS project is to develop an open ICT hardware-software infrastructure enabling the partial automation of tractors and at the same time enhancing their operational safety and production efficiency, with the positive effects of reduced accident risk and environmental impact. In more detail, STRATOS project target is to develop and demonstrate new functions enabled by ISOBUS technology (ISO 11783) that supports a substantial improvement of the quality of the farming jobs. Automation will be provided while processing data sensed through deployed WSN. In addition, ISOBUS interfaces for GPS, GSM and WSN access point will be developed.
