Vineland’s Automation Cluster event
Vineland is home to Canada’s Automation Cluster under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership supported by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.
To celebrate the wrapping up of five years of applied research focused on Canada’s Automation Cluster, Vineland hosted on February 21, 2023 a one-day event showcasing research and facilitating discussions on the future of automation in Canadian horticulture.
Canadian scientists, engineers, companies and end-users were able to:
- Communicate results of cluster projects to the agriculture sector and demonstrate technology prototypes – Smart Irrigation, Mushroom Pick Assist and Vegetable Harvesting (video demo)
- Hear from leading international experts on the latest developments in the science of automation
- Create connections and opportunities for research collaboration
- Create connections with companies who can take prototype technologies to the next stage of commercial development
- Create international awareness and promote Canadian automation innovation
