Professor V.I. Balabanov presented the report "Inventive activity of the Engineering Center of the Timiryazev Academy". It discussed joint research and work plans of the Center in the field of inventive activity with more than ten domestic and foreign companies - JSC "Geomir", JSC "Albatros", NIIMA "Progress", JSC "Roboprob", Trading House "Nikolsk", with which agreements on scientific and technical cooperation and performing a number of research and engineering works.
Thus, as part of the work on the creation of innovative technology, the Engineering Center and the Roboprob company are creating a robotic soil sampler and appropriate software for precise (coordinate) farming. Currently, research is underway to finalize the design of the device and test the cloud service.
Work is also underway to create robotic sprinkler systems, drip irrigation systems and the use of unmanned aerial vehicles in precision land reclamation.
The speaker noted that currently the center's employees have developed, researched and submitted 5 applications for inventions and utility models, as well as received 5 certificates for know-how, including new organometallic lubricants, structures and working bodies of agricultural and reclamation equipment.
A special collection will be published based on the materials of the reports. The program and materials of the international forum can be found on the website https://rusufo.ru/
